    is this past perfect tense or past simple? or am i wrong?

    The museum was built in 1903

    is this past perfect or past simple? and is it spoke in the passive voice?

    any help with the structure also?

    As a native English speaker, you should be careful to use correct capitalisation and punctuation.

    It is past simple in the passsive voice.

    It's hard to know if you were right or wrong as we don't know what you said it was. The person who went for the past perfect was wrong.
