Absolutely outstanding place to visit. Gives any tourist a complete account of Malta's history without overloading information. Good price and equally functional layout.

The Museum of Archaeology is right on Republic Street in Valletta. The building was constructed in 1571, and It has amazing artifacts dating back 5000 years that have been unearthed from sites on the island. Best of all, it has until July the jewel-encrusted de...More
