Excellent museum we nearly missed, had planned just a quick visit but stayed over an hour, not a stuffy museum and surprisingly big with lots of rooms from basement to first floor, well worth a visit and not expensive

The 15 minute intro video is very informative. Lots to see if you take the time. Relics from Roman times to the present. Interesting to see the recently upgraded area where the Turkish baths had been. Lots of naval history and a huge model of Gibraltar in a glass case. Since we were only in the area for part of...

A well researched and presented history of a fascinating part of the world. A 15 minute video presentation takes you from ancient times to the present day. It's best to watch this before finding some of the items from the film that are actually displayed in the museum. The Moorish Baths, which have been carefully revealed, represent the most interesting... More

There's a fantastic range of artefacts and rooms under the streets of Gib. For the price you can't go wrong and will a lot about this special place.

When we visited there was some construction going on but that did not take away from the overall experience. To be honest I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised, great storytelling about the the history of Gibraltar and very interesting artefacts and other historical items. If you are in the area definitely go!

The museum is near the Cathedral and was £2, I think to enter. A wonderful history of Gibraltar and the Moorish ruined baths in the basement are astonishing. The souvenirs are very reasonable here as well. They use the space well and it was really informative.

Very good audio visual intro. Lots of interesting material and artifacts to look at. Liked the small friendly museum. Presentation needs to be updated.

Hidden on a small side street opposite the Bristol Hotel is the museum. A good 15 min film on the history of the rock and plenty of artifacts.What is a surprise is a Moorish Bath house at the back of the inside of the house.Bargain price of £2 entrance.

The Gibraltar Museum is hard to find, but worth it. It is located in a small alley between Bristol and its annex. It features a 15-minute film (very well done) and then the history of Gibraltar. The basement also has the ruins of a bath Moorish times (set of 5 pieces, on the principle of Roman baths) I think this... More
