Museum of Archeology

The Gozo Museum of Archaeology illustrates the cultural history of Gozo from prehistoric times to the early modern period.

The ground floor is devoted to the Neolithic Period, the Temple Period and the Bronze Age (5200-700BC), exhibiting a selection of decorated potsherds, pottery vessels, stone and bone implements and pendants from various settlements and tombs. The Bronze Age section displays a group of miniature clay containers and a decorated double-pot, as well as some fragmented clay votive anchors.

The first floor is devoted to the Phoenician, Punic, Roman, Medieval, and Knights' periods. The collections on display include jewellery, coins, marble statues, inscriptions, oil lamps and part of a limestone olive-pipper.

The collection also includes a number of inscriptions, the oldest carved in Punic characters during the second century BC to commemorate the building and restoration of sanctuaries.
