We're so glad we went to this museum before going to the temple sites - they've removed the scroll work, statues and pottery and keep them in this museum. Really well done exhibits and nice walk through.

Good entry fee and a good opportunity to spend some time away from the heat and the crowds whilst learning about Maltas varied history.

We probably spent between an hour and two wandering this museum. It gave an interesting insight into the island and was good to visit before we went to the Tarxien Temples.

The museum is housed in the baroque headquarters of the Order of St John, which itself worth the visit. The collection coalesces amazing items from the many megalithic / prehistoric sites of the islands ... and that means long before Stonehenge or the Pyramids. Due...More

Frankly don't pay for it unless you have the Malta heritage pass. You have plenty of explanations at each temples you are going to visit already. The only upside is that you get to see the sculptures found at each sites (but don't expect many,...More
