The Turkish government transformed part of the castle grounds into this museum in 1962. Visiting this museum is a great way to check out the shipwrecks of the Aegean Sea. Some of the amphorae found at the small Byzantine ship that dates back to 9th century A.D. are today exhibited in the storage order at the historical space. Also, there are rooms devoted to a princess of the region and the jewelry worn by Turkish women. Beyond those discoveries, farther into the castle is an area that contains almost every tree and plant of the Mediterranean region.
