The Museum houses antiquities that cover the development of civilisation on the island from the 9th millennium to the end of the Roman period. The finds are the result of systematic and rescue excavations of the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus and of foreign Archaeological Missions.

The area of Lemesos included two Kingdoms: Kourion and Amathus. The finds from Kourion are exhibited in the Local Archaeological Museum of Episkopi and the Lemesos Archaeological Museum houses the material from Amathous and its surrounding settlements and sanctuaries.
