Archaeology Museum in Gozo
Incorporate the Archaeology Museum with a walk around the Citadella bastions and admire the 360 panoramic vistas of Gozo.
The Gozo Museum of Archaeology aims to illustrate the rich cultural history of the island of Gozo from prehistoric times to the early modern period. The museum incorporates themes like burials, religion, art, food and daily life, making use of material from various archaeological sites in Gozo.
The Archaeology Museum is located immediately behind the original gateway to the Citadel in Rabat, Gozo, and is housed in a 17th century townhouse. The building came to house the archaeological collection in 1986 as part of a reorganisation programme of the Gozo museum collection. Since then, the Museum saw the restoration of its entire exterior and the refurbishment of the majority of its interiors including the main hall on its first floor.
The Museum's permanent display is divided into three main sections: Prehistory, the Classical period, and the Medieval and Early Modern periods. Items on display range from geological resources put to use by the prehistoric settlers in creating their dwellings and temples, to Phoenician, Punic, and Roman artefacts found in several sites in Gozo and Comino.
