the museum itself feels quite ancient, not many captions and only has two rooms. then a nice path leads to a small cave. not much special, but a nice place to visit if you are around.

By their own leaflet the cave is only 144 metres deep, and only seventy metres are accessible to the public. It is a monumental rip off and should be free.

The cave is largely closed, this is not mentioned anywhere, untill you are in the cave. The museum in itself is a tad outdated, but gives you a good idea on what has been excavated in the past.

I recommend that everyone on the island to visit this site to see where first residents lived. Also you will see how the story was made.

The exhibit, although feeling outdated at times, takes you back thousands of years in an era where Malta had species which nowadays we could never imagine. The skeleton parts of these species are also exhibited in a separate room whilst the exhibit also describes how...More

The cave is lovely , positioned at the bottom of a set of steps lined with flowers and trees all provide pollen for the local bees. When you reach the cave it is small but fascinating. Definitely worth a visit. The small display are at...More
