The Curator Mr Finlayson has really gone out of his way to develop and make the museum more user friendly. Gibraltar is very rich in history and he has captivated all this in such a way that you leave the place historically enriched.

The middle of Gibraltar was really good, to see how it has changed over time. Some great archeological remains found also, with the wells and water cistern in the garden. Good to see the history.

By visiting the museum you will learn many facts about the history of Gibraltar. It has been a British Overseas Territory for 312 years.

Although we have visited Gibraltar on several different occasions this was our first visit to the museum and we both found it very interesting, very informative and at only £2 entry fee, very good value. The first exhibit are models of 2 Neanderthals, a young boy and an older woman, whose skeletons were found on Gibraltar which are incredibly well... More

This museum is a bit tricky, I thought it was going to be about the history of the Rock and all the wars that it went through and how it was held by so many different people over the ages. It was, but there was much, much more I never expected to see. I do not want to spoil it... More

Really interesting and the museum is great definitely worth a visit the only downfall is the women on the front desk I mean If looks could kill. Very miserable staff which kind of ruined the experience. But overall the museum is good but avoid all pleasantries with the front desk staff as they're very unworthy of it. Perhaps she shouldn't...
