This museum is within the Kyrenia Castle. We visited during the winter when the castle was quiet, but the museum was still very crowded. There is not much room to move around and you have to come out the way you go in, so there is a lot of pushing passed people. The ship and its artefacts are very interesting - Cyprus' "Mary Rose". This one is 2300 years old.

This place is a real jem to visit .Much more to see than just the shipwreck museum.The whole castle is wonderful but can get very hot once inside the main wall but there is a lovely little cafe where you can sit under the tree's .so peaceful.
Not great for very little children as there are lots of high points with no barriers.

They have excellent "Ancient Shipwreck Museum". I have been to several such museums in the region but this is one of the best.

The castle is huge and in a very good state of repair.The shipwreck is an astonishing exhibit and at more than two thousand years old must be unique.The items recovered with the ship really made a link with the five sailors who presumably perished with the ship

This museum is situated inside the Kyrenia Castle. You can see a shipwreck of a trading ship that is 2300 years old. It sunk after a pirate attack, it was sunken for centuries and found in 1967 by a local diver. The ship carried wine, cereals and amphoras from Greek islands Samos, Rhodos and Kos. There were also found so called curse tables, that the pirates put into the sinking ships to ensure that the ship would remain on the bottom of the sea.

On your tour of Kyrenia Castle, and included in the ticket price, this shipwreck exhibition forms part of many exhibitions within its walls. A must and very interesting exhibition which was both informative and well displayed.
