'Tucked away'

Although there are major works being carried out when we visited it was still very interesting. Tucked away in one of the streets off Main street well worth searching out.

We went there because it was raining. £2 each to get in. Not a lot to see but still fairly good value.

The museum, although small on the outside, is packed with artefacts and history which is appropriate for all ages. There is a room dedicated to a scale-model of Gibraltar with places such as The Rock and Europa Point visible, information on The Great Siege, Moorish Baths and Neanderthal skulls discovered in Gibraltar. Well worth a visit!

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.
