Museums in Kyrenia  

Kyrenia Shipwreck MuseumKyrenia Shipwreck Museum
This Museum houses the oldest trading ship known to us with her cargo, which was raised from the bottom of the sea. The ship sailed in the Mediterranean during the life time of Alexander the Great and his successors. She sank in open waters less than a mile from the anchorage of Kyrenia. 


Archangelos Church & Icon MuseumArchangelos Church and  Icon Museum
The high bell-tower of this Greek Orthodox church dedicated to Archangel Michael is the most obvious landmark of the town.  The church was built in 1860 and its bell tower was added about 25 year later. At present it serves as a museum where icons gathered from the churches of the Kyrenia area are displayed.


Decorative Arts Museum
Decorative Arts Museum is a 1930s red-tiled villa which houses to a collection of watercolours and paintings, as well as colonial and oriental bric-a-brac which has a rather neglected charm.
