Amazing preservation of an old ship, and some interesting exhibitions. Not very extensive takes no more than an hour to go round.

Found the exhibition really interesting a ship & its contents from so many years ago was fascinating. Well worth the entry to the Castle.

I love this place and the history and seeing the artifacts. Very cool on a scorching hot day. I would visit again if I'm in this area again. Toilets, cafe, gifts.

Not a very interesting museum unless you are very keen on ancient wood. Don't make a special trip, but by all means go in if you are passing.

This is inside Kyrenia Castle (see previous review) Not to be missed. The ancient boat is well preserved and brilliantly displayed and the cargo exhibits are fascinating.

The castle and views were great (if rather cold/windy in mid March!) but the highlight has to be one of the earliest remains of a ship in the world. Far,far older than Mary Rose!

The Hellenistic shipwreck is spectacular. However, the standards of conservation are abysmal. The space is not only not temperature or humidity controlled, there are actually holes to the exterior.

Decided to visit the castle which we really enjoyed only to find this little treasure at the end of our afternoon. This was very interesting and unique. You will not be disappointed.
