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.

In der Festung am alten Hafen ist auch ein Museum untergebracht. Wichtigstes Ausstellungsstück ist ein Schiffswrack, das über 2000 Jahre unter Wasser lag.

Shacks show the historical background The museum didactics are somewhat dusted. A visit, which should also be followed by a tour on the fortress wall, is rewarding.

Small Museum packed with fascinating artifacts... The Shipwreck Museum houses the remains and cargo of what was once the oldest shipwreck ever discovered and raised. At almost 2,400 years old, the Ancient Greek trading vessel and its cargo provide a rare insight into life during the time of Alexander the Great. Kyrenia Castle alone is more than worth a visit, so if you're here, be sure to take an hour to tour this little museum,
Fascinating little museum located inside the castle. The museum is dedicated to the discovery, recovery and preservation of a merchant ship, over 2000 years old. Full of items from the ship's cargo and also contains a large part of the wooden hull. Well worth visiting the castle just for the museum.
