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.
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.
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.
Folk Arts Museum
This small museum which
was originally a typical 18th century Cypriot house is situated in the harbour.
On its ground floor an olive press and a threshing board and other items related
to agricultural life are displayed. Its second floor houses bridal
costumes, carved wooden chests and various needlework items.
