You then walk around with a audio guide showing the workings of the quarry through the ages and some mock ups of traditional buildings and an original Roman Well and neolithic burial chamber.There is also a small collection of goats,...

If you plan to enjoy the rich architecture of the island , then a trip here BEFORE you start is a must. The museum built in an old quarry will go through the stages of producing the limestone bricks that are used throughout the land. There are also example buildings showing how they are traditionally built. Once you have visited... More

Tour starts with a 9 minute video of the history and importance of the Limestone in Malta, followed by a walk through tableau of the old quarrying techniques and tools moving forward through to more modern times. The tour is set in the remains of a worked out quarry and part shows how the land is developed after closure. There... More

The museum is mostly open air and located in an old limestone quarry. Exhibits tell the story of quarrying in the area with interesting details. You can carve your own Maltese Cross in a small block of limestone, but this is really for children. In March it was very quiet, other than school parties. Get the bus to Siggiewi from... More

A very nice evening. Arranged by the hotel receptionist on my behalf. Deposit paid at hotel and balance paid on arrival. Transport arrived on time and got us there swiftly and without incident. Purely by chance I managed to get the last folkloric evening of the season. Unfortunately due to the weather, the event was held indoors rather than in... More

Had promised a visit for ages, finally got there and enjoyed every minute, very reasonable to enter and could take your time, learning how things were done in times gone by. They have small gardens and some goats, donkeys, chickens, spent a little time with Lawrence the resident stone carver and saw him in action, he explained what he was... More

My daughter recently held her marriage ceremony here. The location is perfect offering both inside and outside dining areas. There are also small animal enclosures, great for keeping the children entertained. We had a wonderful experience and the 80+ guests were full of admiration of the venue.

My wife and I got married here on 1st Sept and it was superb. I had been planning it for 10 months, and Eve was very helpful throughout. When I arrived on the wedding day I was blown away. The set up was great, the atmosphere and surroundings were perfect for our personalities. All of our 35 guests were also... More
