This little two roomed museum is a little gem filled with local artefacts. The lovely volunteer was pleased to see us and gave us a postcard as well as some stamps. Well worth a visit and a small donation!

It is just by chance that we got in this small museum. There are a lot of artifacts from different time periods, and they are very interesting. The museum is free, but please make a little contribution to upkeep for other visitors too.

Popped in here with my Dad for a quick look at de Valette's sword. What makes this church museum is the enthusiasm of the gentleman there who runs it. Interesting place well worth 30 mins or so of your time.

This free museum is quite small and maintained by volunteers - but some of the artefacts are special relics from the Great Siege of Malta. Don't be deterred by its modest appearance, this museum is well worth a visit.
