This was a very special museum with very many icons to watch. There were also lot of other interesting details to see both inside and outside this museum.

situated in a small orthodox church close to the harbour, the Kyrenia Icon museum, has a fairly nice selection of icons and a lovely icon-screen. Sadly very little info available on the exhibited icons.

Beautiful iconostasis. Icons of variable ages, some quite modern. Very quiet and very cheap. Pleasantly cool. Wont take long to visit-30 mins max I reckon.

I am sorry I did not note the opening times nor have I kept any infomation about it. As the previous respondent said I imagine it will be open in Dec and Jan as it is a government sponsored museum.
