The exhibition on the ground floor can be improved since there is boring and too many words now. There is a more interacting exhibition on the first floor. It highlights the main characteristics of some important temples. I would expect a more fruitful exhibition about...More

I wasn’t expecting this. Very cool and very interesting. Save some money and buy a pass to multiple sites run by the same department. Roman house is worth every second. This gem is worth the time out to see!

The staff of the museum was excellent but the museum itself including information boards, exhibits' windows and need some renovation. It's such a shame to treat the masterpieces of human history like this.

Not a lot going on considering the size of the building. Some great pieces at the end. Cant not argue for that price. Worth a pop in for 20mins.

Informative information as well as some historical and beautiful artifacts. Great central location in Valletta so a great stop if you want to escape the crowds and the heat.
