Only went to see and explore the Castle but came across this gem. Amazed that they have salvaged the remains of this ship dating back to 300 BC. An assortment of artefacts are well displayed. Certainly worth a visit.

Not a huge amount to see but what there is is very interesting. Incredibly well preserved remains of ancient shipwreck and its contents. Display explains (in English) how the ship was used and how it sank and was recovered. Stone steps up to the wreck...More

It was quite an experience to see the remains of this ancient shipwreck which is supposed to be the oldest. Well worth the visit

You have to walk downhill, across then uphill and turn right to get into courtyard, ship museum is signposted. It was interesting and cool on a hot day

Set within the walls of Kyrenia's Castle this museum and wrecks offers an insight into the trade routes around the Mediterranean islands in ancient times and the cargoes they were carrying.

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

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.
