Greece Opens World’s First Underwater Museum Around a 2,400-Year-old Shipwreck

Greece’s first underwater museum allows visitors to dive down in time to the era of the Peloponnesian War while viewing ancient shipwrecks and pristine coral gardens.

Diving down to depths of 80 feet, guides are able to show visitors the 90-foot-long Peristera shipwreck sitting where it sank 2,400 years ago while carrying a cargo of wine and black-glazed clay tableware.

The optimistic opening, COVID-19 permitting, will be June 2021.

Located in the National Marine Park of Alonissos and Northern Sporades, the first Marine Protected Area established in Greece and the largest in Europe, divers will also have the chance to come face to face with over 300 fish species, Mediterranean monk seals, and beautiful coral beds.

For those not intending to dive, five underwater cameras can show visitors a glimpse of what’s underneath the waves, including one which runs on a 24-hour live stream.
