It is an audio-visual,fine arts and historical museum that tells a story. It is unique in the Maltese islands in that its construction, including a medieval wing, was conceived and designed as a modern multi-mediatic museum that includes audio-visual halls and interactive points on every floor. Basically this museum and cultural centre, displays a rich collection of historical and artistic artifacts.

Great place to visit when you are on Gozo,, it is a small museum in the heart of Victoria and has a timeline mapping the history of the island of Gozo. The caretaker was Scottish and gave an inspired insight to the exhibition.
