For just £2, you get to see a 15 minute video on the history of Gibraltar, loads of interesting exhibits, photographs and paintings from Venitian to current day, and the Moorish baths beneath the building. From Neanderthal woman to a mummy, cannonballs to historic food packets, everything was well labelled and laid out. We expected more on World War II... More

Nice little museum, a film about the history of Gibraltar before we started looking around, it's a bit of a maze but really interesting and all for an entrance price of £2

We enjoyed our visit to this 'warren' of a museum which is spread over three floors. It's just around the corner from the cathedral and it was interesting to find out about the history of Gibraltar. I recommend a visit. Lots of stairs.

On Saturday 17th May the Museum had an open day and we went in for a few hours and marveled at the fantastic history and artifacts on display. We sat and watched films for approx 25 mins which showed the early history of Gibraltar. Well worth a visit.

It is worth a few hours especially if you are into history. A small fee is charged. This is an important part of the Gibraltar visit ! I do recommend it !

Set just off Main St this reminded me of the similar museum in Jersey. A short film gives you a grounding of how the geography was formed over 200k years and how its people have endured countless events both positive and negative. There are so many eras that have happened to Gib each with a different character and the museum... More

I'm surprised anyone goes in as the woman serving is so miserable. Any question or any verbal exchange is met in the most miserable manner by the lady serving. Maybe she was having a bad day, I suppose we all have them. The museum is having building work done outside but it didn't trouble us inside. There's a short film... More
