when looking at displays from digs that pre date Stone Henge by 2000 years or more it is hard to believe how advanced the civilisations on this small island were in those era's

So much to see and take in, very well organised and presented. Stopped using the free audio guide as there was plenty to read, and we enjoyed stopping to read our guide. We were so inspired we went to visit several of the sites featured.

The museum has some really special neolithic artefacts from the various historic sites across Malta and Gozo. The Neolithic finds are superb. Presentation is poor with some of the information boards curling up with age and the AV material dated (and not playing properly).

From memory covered the Neolithic, bronze & Phoenician periods of Maltese history. If one uses the very enlightening audioguide to the full or reads all the panels a visit should take a few hours. Excellent range of items on display. Overall, if one is interested...More
