Visited this venue by design and was not disappointed having an interest in the Roman period. The museum provides not only a brief history of the Roman occupation of Malta but gives a small insight into the Islamic and early European periods.
The artifacts portray a good example of a typical Roman town house with one excellent mosaic of "drinking doves" and one mosaic that following inhabitants tried the clumsily restore many many moons ago after the fall of Rome showing how the Romans where a class apart.
There are a small number of statues to admire and well preserved artifacts from every day Roman life from kitchenware, ladies grooming instruments and even children's play things.
I took my time when I visited to read all the information and soak in all the objects. Well worth 6 euro or even better value if the buy a block ticket for the nearby Catacombs Of St Paul and the Natural History Museum
