The museum is housed in a nice old building which arguably makes it unsuitable to house the displays because of the small rooms, narrow stairs and passageways particularly for those less mobile.
On one side of the building courtyard there are notably geology, stuffed bird and animal skeleton displays. There are virtually no botanical displays as far as I could see. The entrance to the exhibits, which is not immediately obvious, is on the other side of the courtyard from the ticket desk. The displays are really antiquated and outdated by the the modern standard. The extensive collection of stuffed birds of the Maltese Islands in large cabinets is an example, but in a way it is quaint and quite engaging as an example of how museums used to be.
The rock mineral collection is on an upper floor on a different side of the courtyard and is signposted. Again the style of presentation is old school, in horizontal glass cabinets but there are a lot of very good specimens from different places.
