  • Came here on Bus 82 (any bus to Birzebbugga will do)straight from Tarxien Temple site so only about 10 minutes journey. Bus stop across the road from the cave and early morning ( 10.30am) I was the on...  more »
  • For the archeological point of view, this is a great spot to visit. It´s true that we can only walk in the cave for a few meters, but it´s worth it. After you can pass by the museum to see what they h...  more »
  • Getting to Ghar Dalam on public transport is not practical since all buses use Valletta as the hub. From Buggiba, one may be on board for over 3 hours. I would suggest going via one of the organised m...  more »

  • Nice historical place showing bones of animals that were found in Malta. Not expensive. It is a pity that only part of the cave can be accessed.
  • Very interesting introduction to the geological formation of Malta island and development of pleistocenic fauna (eg. Dwarf elefant skeleton) in Museum. As a bonus you will get an insight into Maltese flora in the museum garden.
  • Because we can learn about our little lovely island of Malta
  • From the map and tourist information, you think to go inside a cave. But it's just a 50m hole in the mountain. The visit starts descending many stairs to get to the cave. Once entered you expect to walk inside the mountain and to see something. But at the end there is only a description of the levels on which they found fossils. Then you get upset when you think to walk down the mountain but you are stopped by a no trespassing chain. The visit goes on going up again to the museum at the entrance where you can see all the fossil bones of many animals. I think it's a site that can be interesting for passionate people about ice age. I saw other impressive caves with fossils but this is not one of those.
  • Very informative and the cave was cool. Not very deep.
