Gibraltar National Museum's virtual tour is giving thousands a look back into the past
  • Posts have ranged from archaeology to social history

Nearly 5,000 people with an interest in Gibraltar and its history have gone online and visited the National Museum's website and social media pages since it set up its Virtual Museum two weeks ago.

Posts have ranged from archaeology to social history, with the most popular on the Great Sand Dune behind Catalan Bay, the medieval Galley House at Casemates and a 20 thousand-year old bone spear point from Gorham's Cave.

Also popular are descriptions of artefacts, adverts from the Gibraltar Directory of 1920 and even earlier, and photographs of old Gibraltar.
