We didn't expect much from this museum but as were staying just next to it we went in. Amazing value, only £4 each. It takes over an hour to walk around and there is a 15 minute film show about Gibraltar. An absolute must

This great little museum is hidden down a little side stree towards the Cable Car just off Main Street. Not very well signposted, so you may have to ask the locals! Small and compact, it gives an excellent history of Gibraltar from Moors to present day. Excellent informative displays. Lots to read and look at, so give yourself plenty of... More

This museum fits into an historic building with excavation of ancient Moorish structures below. This imposes a somewhat eccentric structure and makes navigating a bit complex.However, there is lots to see. It rewards the visitor who is prepared to devote time to studying the exhibits. It does lack dynamism and would benefit from some interactive displays.

If you want to know more about the history of Gibraltar the museum is a must. Sadly it's hidden down a side street and not much promoted with signposts etc.....

Cost very little and yet very interesting to learn about the history of Gibraltar worth a visit . It will only take 30min or so but it makes you appreciate the back ground and the landmarks you will see.

A great little museum which explains the history of Gibraltar there is a 15 minute film to watch just as you enter that gives you more history on how the island was formed throughout the ages . The rest of the exhibits are very good and well thought out and it was nice to see the full history of the... More

For such a small island it's place in History is enormous. Going back over thousands of years it has guarded the entrance to the Mediterranean
