Brimming with exhibits from an anthropological past, Mleiha is a significant center for precious archaeological finds. Dive into the history of the Neolithic and Paleolithic ages and, with experts around you, learn about early humans and their tales of survival. Knives, arrowheads, and other tools used for hunting animals and protection were unearthed at Mleiha. Find these tools on display and admire the creativity of our ancestors as experts demonstrate how flint was used to make these objects.

Trace back the roots of these creations to the Valley of the Caves, where, on a small trek, you can come across sites of flint knapping. These caves were where the Paleolithic and Neolithic humans resided, and you can learn more about their history from the guides.
