    • Kyrenia Shipwreck Museum: Home to a trading ship from the time of Alexander the Great, the museum offers an insight into her cargo on the last voyage. Wine amphoras, drinking cups and oil jugs are among the artefacts on show.
    • Kyrenia Museum of Folk Art: Situated near the harbour, this is a small museum housed in an 18th century Cypriot property.
