It is rather on the small side. So 1 hour is the average time you will probably spend visiting this museum. It is not a must see, but a nice way to spend an hour if the weather is bad outside!

A very well organised and displayed museum. Great explanation of the history and prehistory of Malta. Audio tour excellent and free with your €5 ticket. Loved the models of historic sites and all the genuine artefacts.

The museum has some wonderful and well-preserved pieces of Stone Age man, taken from the various temples on the island. Also pieces from the Phoenician period. It's not a huge collection, but is worth an hour or two of your time if you have an...More

The museum is small and housed in a beautiful old building in the centre of Valletta. When we were there, they were actively restoring some of the grand upstairs rooms. It is extensive enough to make a proper visit worthwhile but not so large that...More
