“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Really enjoyed this museum. The artefacts from the various temples are great and really help 'tie up' a trip to the various temples.

“definitely must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Malta has some amazing prehistoric sites, and the museum shows these in perfect details, actually saving you time and disapointments. Some of the actual sites are open only on certain days of the week, others are booked for weeks ahead, so the museum is a very good single point of information.

“Facinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The history of Malta is very old. This museum has an interesting and well presented collection artifacts from prehistoric times. The ancient Maltese really had a thing for rotund female figures with tiny feet.

“the most overlooked attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is a must stop if you are going to any of the archaeological sites. Going to the museum first gives you a timeline and puts the sites in cntext which makes them easier to understand. After the museum we went to the Hypogeym and saw the place where the artifacts were found. Great museum.
