Proto - Industrial Museum

EXCURSIONS / Museums / Nicosia / Proto - Industrial Museum
The early industrial workshop of Agia Varvara is unique in Cyprus. It combines a traditional house with the place of work.

The ingenuity of the owner led to the establishment of a pioneering workshop using the primitive means of the 1920s. The flourmill, the crushed wheat mill, the barley mill and the oil mill were all put in motion by a single engine.

With the combination of transmission shafts, wheels and belts, motion was distributed to a number of machines, according to the owner’s needs. The wine mill and the loom, which was skilfully used by the owner’s wife thereby contributing to the family income, completed the picture.
