So interesting, with some of the cargo. It has presumably been stabilised but not restored unlike the one in Arles museum

My uncle and I went here to see the boat and it was not in the museum, and were very dissappointed. There should have been a notice saying it wasn't there, before we paid.

Girne kalesinin içinde bulunan bir müzedir ve bu tarihi gemi kalıntısı, uzun yıllar öncede nasıl yükler taşındığının anlaşılmasını sağlamaktadır. The museum is located in the Kyrenia castle and the remains of this historic ship, how many years is to provide an understanding before moving loads.

Nice place in Girne harbour. Gives a good snap shot of the history of northern cyprus. Would be worthwhile if they planted grass or more greenery in the main courtyard, otherwise the displays were pretty good. Wheelchair or pram access is much needed.

There's not a lot to see but what there is impresses. We particularly liked seeing what the boat had contained - including a curse!

Great shipwreck, almost complete, recovered from the sea near Kyrenia. Makes it worthwhile visiting the castle. Good for a rainy day.

Very interesting. the area where the shipwreck is housed has a narrow viewing hallway/platform, if you go in behind a tour group, expect to be stuck in there

Interesting insight into Kyrenia's history of international trade. Amazing ship structure. Can get a bit busy during peak periods as one way in and out around the ship viewing walkway! Worth seeing!

Having seen the Mary Rose years ago, I was surprised to go into the room to find that it was dry. The ship is in an air conditioned room having been treated beforehand to preserve it. This is the busiest part of the castle.

We came across this by surprise when exploring the castle. It's very interesting and the artefacts give great insight into life in those times. Very well displayed .
