Of particular note is the Grand Salon, with its richly painted walls and wooden beamed ceiling. The Museum exhibits a spectacular range of artefacts dating back to Malta’s Neolithic period (5000 BC) up to the Phoenician Period (400 BC). Highlights include the ‘Sleeping Lady’ , the ‘Venus of Malta', bronze daggers, the Horus & Anubis pendant and the anthropomorphic sarcophagus, both belonging to the Phoenician period.
