Expert review of National Museum of Archaeology
The Neolithic galleries display all the best art and craft work from Malta’s extraordinary temples built between 3600BC and 2500BC, as well as interesting material about their construction, and jewellery and pots made at that time. There are carvings of patterns, animals and people, including the “Fat Ladies of Malta” - voluptuous statues that, along with various phallic symbols, were probably part of a fertility cult. The best of the “Fat Ladies” is a delicate little “Sleeping Lady” found in the Hypogeum. She was modelled out of clay at about the time Stonehenge was being built.
Adults cost 5 euros, over-60s and children aged 12-17 cost 3.50 euros, and children aged 6-11 are 2.50 euros. Children under-6 go free.
