Best National Museums in Malta

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Malta team

Malta has no Louvre or Guggenheim, and apart from a Caravaggio, no collections of priceless works of art... however, a visit to a museum is a very much recommended option to delve deeper into local culture or periods in Malta's history.

Museums in Malta are usually situated within historic buildings which are an attraction in themselves. They cover a wide set of interests from Maltese maritime history to the years of the Knights of St John to the more recent events of World War II. Archaeology, fine arts, folklore and aviation are other topics covered by various museums around Malta and Gozo.
