Unfortunately our kids were done looking at museums or actually anything. Between the jet lag and just plain being grumpy they were determined not to enjoy themselves. It was nice other than tired kids

Loved this little museum, loads of interesting history and artifacts all well presented, particularly good if you are a fan of military history and memorabilia,but equally lots of presentations about the islanders and their evacuation etc during ww2 Staff really friendly too

Not normally the type to spend a lot of time in museums but this one I found quite interesting, some great old Pathe News footage to watch and really enjoyed being enlightened about Gibraltar's past.

This was a museum that was trying hard but didn't hit the mark for me. My disappointment was with the presentation of the Moorish baths. I would have appreciated information on entering, rather than at the main part.
