Ancient Shipwreck Museum, Kyrenia

(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Ancient Shipwreck Museum preserves the remains of a 4th-century BCE sea vessel and its cargo, reputedly the oldest shipwreck known to man. According to scientific estimations, the ship sailed for 80 years before it foundered. Lying 30 m (98 ft) under the sea surface, this merchant ship concealed great wealth. View 75 percent of the ship's preserved body and browse through objects such as wine amphorae from Rhodes, jars filled with perfectly preserved almonds, and various kitchen utensils. Read stories of the ship's history and see photographs of the salvage expedition that took place between 1967 and 1969.

  • The exposition was very well arranged, and it was a very interesting story to read. In the castle there are severel animated scenes from early times 
  • it is difficult to image these things from the old remains, but there are some excellent reconstructions which bring the thing to life 
  • I went from not bad to see TripAdvisor the way we went into the castle to Kyrenia fortress log 7 TL
