The Rock HotelGibraltar Museum

The Gibraltar Museum was founded in 1930. Located in the City Centre in Bomb House Lane, the Museum houses an extensive and fascinating array of cultural and natural history collections, prints, paintings and drawings, and objects.
 
  
The museum is the showcase for the rich diversity of Gibraltar’s cultural heritage and social history, from its first known inhabitants, the Neanderthal people 127,000 years ago, to Phoenician and Carthaginian traders in the first millennium BCE leaving offerings to the gods in Gorham’s Cave, the Moorish conquest of 711 CE and 700 years of Moorish rule, the Spanish occupation and British period. It has informative displays on the geology, caves and landscape of Gibraltar which have influenced settlement, and on the wide-ranging, sometimes unique natural species.
