The Thalassa Museum, named after the Greek word for 'sea,' serves as a modern, interactive facility housed in a multi­purpose cultural center. Its primary goal is to raise awareness about Cyprus' marine heritage, spanning from prehistoric eras to the present.

Among the captivating exhibits, a life-size replica of the renowned 4th-century Greek trading ship 'Keryneia II,' which sank off the coast of Keryneia around 300 BC, takes pride of place. The museum's clever design allows visitors to view the ship from various levels, including a birds­eye perspective, along with other antiquities like pottery.

Descending to the basement, you'll find a marine life section showcasing an array of exhibits, from fish and sea mammals to crustaceans, corals, shells, and fossils dating back as far as 130 million years ago.

Besides functioning as an arts exhibition center, the museum also serves as a versatile hall, accommodating various events and conferences.
