A variety of exhibits of Gibraltar through the ages. Cheap to enter and enough to see in about an hour. Neanderthal models at the entrance are wonderful!

Excellent little Museum full of some interesting history. For me it was well worth a visit. Good for an hour or two. Something to see and do apart from The Rock

Four stars as you can't go far wrong with an attraction that's costs just £2 to get in. A strange mix of stuff really. Some focus on artefacts found over the years. Some history of the building through its life. Found the history from British...More

We found this a bit by accident and were somewhat concerned by the outside appearance as it looked small - how wrong we were. It is a brilliant museum. The museum has an outside area and an upper floor and had many interesting archaeological artifacts...More
