Museum sights in Agia Napa
- Sort by:
The very swanky new Thalassa Municipal Museum of the Sea is dedicated to all things to do with the sea (thalassa means 'sea' in Greek). The centrepiece of the museum is the amazing reconstruction of the boat that was shipwrecked off the coast of Kyrenia in the 3rd century BC; it's original skeleton is displayed in Kyrenia Castle. The ship was reconstructed using traditional materials and methods. Behind it there is a large video projection of divers supposedly discovering the wreck in 1967.
The museum also has a stylish café, where you can have a quiet coffee, food or drink.
The small private Marine Life Museum, hidden away in the lower ground floor of the modern Agia Napa town hall, is a lot less flashy than the Thalassa museum. If you are into marine biology, fossilised shells, stuffed fish, sharks, turtles and sea birds, then drop in for a quick visit. The display is fairly limited, but well laid out and documented.
