“Buy a multipass ticket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Buy the multipass ticket to make the most of these attractions. There is so much history relating to Malta and it would be a shame to miss it.

This was our second stay in Valletta and our third to Malta. So many places to visit. Buy the multipass ticket to make the most of the attractions.

“no to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I might be seen as a person obsessed with museums, but I`m not!It`s just that this little museum has exceptional prehistorical artifacts and if you had no time to visit some archaeological sites from the island, the museum will fed you up with the most interesting elements,.

“DIsapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I was expecting something a bit better from this museum. The first part (prehistorical) is presented in an old-fashioned, static and repetitive way,. The second part (phoenician), is better but still the visit left me without answers to the many questions I had about Malta.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

As you rightly stated, the Neolithic section is nowadays a bit dated, however there are plans for this section to be renovated in the near future. The museum is currently updating its displays with the addition of a late Punic and Roman display. This will soon be open to the public. As soon as this is done, the museum plans to expand even further with the addition of the Byzantine and Medieval period.

Should you wish to receive further information regarding Malta’s history, and prehistory, please do not hesitate to contact us on info@heritagemalta.org

Kind regards,

Heritage Malta
