Malta may be small, but when it comes to history and culture, it certainly packs a punch. Every street corner has its story to tell, and it can get overwhelming.
The Island has a fantastic range of museums all just a GoTo journey away.
Here’s 5 museums and venues we think are definitely worth the visit.
The Inquisitor’s Palace
Not just the home of the Inquisitor between 1574 and 1798, the Palace also housed the prisons. Head on over to Birgu to step back in time in the Palace’s many rooms and hallways.
Fort St. Angelo
Also, in Birgu you can find one of the most famous fortifications in Maltese history, Fort St. Angelo. It’s been recently renovated and the museum has lots to offer, from the fort’s structure to its role in major battles.
Ħaġar Qim Temples
Ħagar Qim is a UNESCO must-see. Located near Qrendi, the impressive masonry dates back to 3600 and 3200 BC. The museum has an impressive spread of information about the prehistoric temples and their significance, both past and present. Take a trip over and why not combine your visit with the Mnajdra temples too? They are just over the hill!
Lascaris War Rooms
If you want a detailed look at the heart of the British HQ during WWII, the Lascaris War Rooms are for you. Once a secret location, these extensive rooms are open to the public and the museum will take you back to the core of where missions were organised and enemies monitored.
The Manoel Theatre
Considered to be the third oldest theatre still in operation, the Manoel Theatre’s lavish gold balconies are a joy to behold. Not just for theatre lovers!
There you have it! Malta has plenty to offer, whichever part of history you want to explore.
