So interesting. A place that offers the visitor a great insight into Malta's history. Whether you are on your own, or as a family, it is a place to put on your visiting list

So interesting. Situated by the small harbour of Mellieha. Small but full of very interesting artefacts and information. A must. Do not be put off by the shored up building as its well worth the visit. It is around 300 years old.

Interesting example of a historic building of strategic importance. Unfortunately museum was closed due to maintenance
