“National museum of archaeology”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Fascinating collection from Neolithic to Phoenician. The prehistoric temple finds are stunning esp the female figurines and carved stones but the museum needs a shop to increase income and improve the presentation.

“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

If you are interested in the ancient history of Malta and the surrounding regions this museum will give you a very good overview and makes an excellent first port of call if you intend to visit the temples and other ancient sites. Well presented and very informative, allow a couple of hours.

“Good addition to visiting historic Malta Temples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

A fairly basic but informative museum, good to see all the artefacts preserved from local sites, eg. Temples at Tarxien and Hypogeum.

“Lots of things to learn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

If you are visiting Malta because of it's history (rather than just its sunshine, diving and water), then this is a great museum. Lots of artifacts and history, quite well displayed.

“Much more interesting than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

A very helpful account of the spread of farming across Europe leads on to an excellent display of Neolithic, 'Temple period', Bronze Age and Phoenician cultures. Very absorbing and not to be missed, especially if you have already or are planning to visit the temples or Hypogeum.
