  • Serene place. Variety of adventurous packages available. Camping, trekking, sunset lounge! A must visit place for archaeological lovers.
  • The place is very interesting to visit, and it’s underrated, tourists don’t come here often but people who visit Mleiha should come here. The only reason I am not giving this a 5 star is because younger kids wouldn’t particularly enjoy this.
  • Nice center to learn about historic evolution. Surrounding areas are nice for treks
  • We have taken several groups of visitors to the center, and everyone has been delightfully surprised. There is a wealth of information on the displays, without being too much to take in. On top of that, staff at the center are uniformly pleasant, friendly and helpful.
  • Great place to visit with children. The site which used to be the bottom of the ocean has actual fossils for them to discover. It is also a place where tectonic plates meet!! We also did a great activity where they made their own fossils. but would advise going only when the weather is cooler. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable which comes through when they show and tell visitors about their fossil collection. Bring a hat and be ready to walk in some sand and rocks.
