The Royal Lyteran Museum is a museum founded by HHRH King Alexander I of Lytera. The Museum is located in the Imperial Household. Due to being inside the household, tours aren't open to the public, and must be arranged prior to arrival. The founding items of the Museum were those in the private collection of Alexander I.

Most of the items are contained in a 2006 Barbie Windup Music Box, with the rest located in and around the household.

The museum focuses on Numismatic and Micronational history, with other object collected compiled under a 'Miscellaneous' section.
