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

One of the smaller museums I've been to but it covers a lot, from the time man first settled in Gibraltar to current events, was not very expensive to get in (£2 I think) but worth a visit to find out the history of Gibraltar

I have visited GIB many times and this is the first time I went into the museum. Very informative and can be walked around in an hour. A good history. Go here first and spend £2 for a background to what you are going to experience in GIB.

Small but a very good insight of Gibraltar life. It is located just off the high street and should be on your list if you are on a short visit to this wonderful town
