The Museum invites you to travel to the magical world of sea turtles on a dream journey that covers over 200 million years since their appearance. The journey starts with the history of the evolution of turtles on Earth, moving on to their appearance in the Mediterranean and the sandy beaches of Lara and Toxeftra, which are world famous for being the nesting sites for two sea turtle species, the Loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) and the Green turtle (Chelonia mydas).

This exceptionally interesting exploration is a fascinating journey through the past, present and future of these endangered/threatened marine species, which will raise your awareness and encourage you to become an ambassador for the protection of these living treasures of our ecological heritage.

At this unique Museum you can see a collection of the different shells that protect the turtles that swim in the Earth’s oceans, seas and lakes, immerse yourself in the magic of their aquatic life through unique exhibits, photographs, maps, dioramas and other visual media, and enjoy films, presentations, and interactive games using the latest technologies.
