Enjoyed the experience of reviewing many artefacts from the Stone age, Bronze age, Phoenician period of their history. They have tried to make it engaging and interesting. They could improve on directional signs for visitors.
This museum is interesting for those solely interested in the archaeological history of Malta and has displays of ancient pottery and some audio visual displays. As one if the finest baroque buildings in the city of Valletta you may think it is worth seeing the...More

Quite a very good local museum, small, mostly about Malta's important very distant past. A good complement to the museum adjoining the ruins at Gigantija. If you're into neolithic Europe, this is bedrock.

Of particular interest were the carvings removed from some of the temples
You could easily spend an afternoon here
