Ministry for Heritage

In 2014 the Ministry of Sports, Culture, Heritage and Youth expanded its Heritage Office to include the services of an archaeologist to advice the Government of Gibraltar on heritage and conservation matters as the new heritage filter. In particular this new post will assess any archaeological, heritage and conservation issues arising from the Building Applications submitted to the Development Planning Commission [DPC], heritage conditions on new tenders and developments, Desk-Based Assessments [DBA’s], archaeological excavations and the planning of developer funded archaeology projects in the city of Gibraltar.

The Gibraltar Museum

The Gibraltar Museum, located within the historical heart of Gibraltar is a national museum of history, culture and natural history.
Founded on 23 July 1930 by the then Governor of Gibraltar General Sir Alexander Godley, the Museum houses an array of galleries and exhibits representing the Rock's millennia-old history and the unique culture of the Gibraltarians. Sir Alexander carefully selected two adjacent military quarters to house the Museum. One of the buildings, Ordnance House, was the official residence of the Principal Artillery Officer and beneath it lay the chambers of an ancient bath house dating from Gibraltar’s Moorish period.
