I took a bus here from Valletta. The stop was right in front of the museum and there was a big flag at the entrance making this place easy to find. We only had an hour to explore the cave and museum which was perfect....More

A worthwhile visit just to witness what occurred millions of years ago If your interested in heritage sites don’t miss this one if your already visiting the Taxien temple complex it’s not far in distance by bus

A small cave where you can't see much, and an even smaller museum with a lot of bones and not much info. Unless you are really interested in stuff like this, don't go

Cool wee cave and interesting museum. Quite small but for €5 worth a visit if you’re in the area. Lots of information on prehistoric formation and animals of the area

If you love history, this is a little gem. The museum is full of bone fragments from pigmy hippos and elephants. They are not assembled into whole skeletons but displayed in sections. The caves are well lit. You can only enter part of the cave...More

Visited this cave in early June. Ghar Dalam is a natural waterworn cave in St Georges Bay. Long ago during the pleistocene period floods and rivers flowed through the cave depositing thousands of animal bones inside the cave. These are the deposits of 500,000 years...More

A nice little cave that can be seen in 10 minutes. There’s a museum there as well and it houses thousands of bones. It’s a good place to go to if you fancy looking at bones...

My wife and I went here while riding a motorbike around Malta and it definitely surpassed our expectations. Good exhibit and information. You can walk right into the cave and experience it yourself. I would definitely recommend it.

We went here for the cave, which is really nice, however pretty small. There’s no access with a stroller (that wasn’t a problem for us cause we had a carrier and lovely lady at ticket booth let us keep the stroller inside) Museum is intertesting...More

We read this was one of the best caves in Malta. I hope not. We came by bus, went through the Visitor Center (lots of bones in cabinets) then walked to the cave. Spent about 5 minutes inside the cave, 4 of which were due...More

Unfortunately I'd say not accessible at all. There's quite a few steps to get to the museum entrance and then lots and lots of steps leading down to the cave. I didn't see any alternative route but could be wrong. I would... More
