It is with great pleasure that I write these words of introduction to our new Gibraltar National Museum website. Its launch follows the opening of brand new exhibition galleries, with the ground floor aimed at focusing on Gibraltar's new UNESCO World Heritage Site and also telling the story of the discoveries in anthropology, archaeology and biology which have been made in Gibraltar since the 18th Century and the first floor focusing on Gibraltar’s rich natural, military and social histories.
Gibraltar is a very special place and is a living museum in its own right. The role of the Gibraltar National Museum is to act as a focal point from where visitors can go out and explore the rest of Gibraltar. We have been active in social media for some time now and this new web site adds a new dimension to our work and the unique story which we are privileged to tell. Keep visiting this page as we will be constantly updating it. I hope that you will enjoy its contents.
