“Reluctant visitor to museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This was a fantastic museum with some wonderful displays revealing the ancient tribes of Malta and their wonderful village structures . Pity there is no museum shop selling copies of the displays.

“Well displayed and facinating exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

This is well laid out, depicting malta's early history.
Detailed explanations cover all items and there are many artifacts to see and learn about.
Although recently refurb'd, looking dated already.

“Well worth a visit”

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