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...

Well worth a visit. Don’t miss the cisterns in the gardens or the baths downstairs. Upstairs a huge model of the rock and lots of photos. Also details about the siege. Liked the fact that it still had exhibits and isn’t a modern interactive museum. Small entry fee.

The Museum houses a collection of Gibraltar's original artefacts, old prints and photographs along with an audio visual presentation, whilst the Rock's rich and diverse natural history is also represented. The lower part of the building features a well preserved Moorish Bath House from around the 14th century, reputedly one of the best preserved in Europe. The building, the former... More

Gibraltar Museum requires prior written consent before your visit if you wish to photograph anything inside. There's an outdoor space which is nice to visit, quiet, calming; history about Gibraltar, a model of Gibraltar, reclaimed land for their airstrip, an old large TV camera, samurai uniform with sword, among things displayed. The staff person at the front was friendly, informative,... More

We were one of the first visitors of the day so there was no rush and we could take our time to wonder around. We were told as we entered "no photos" and reminded again as I stopped to find my glasses' they seemed really concerned about anyone taking photos. It does look very small from the outside but it...

We enjoyed our visit to this fine small museum on a day where school trips were teaching locals on the history of the Rock.From the earliest settlers to the great siege you get a sense of what it was like to live on this unique part of Europe.Don't miss the short film on the creation of the 2 Neanderthals,
