The website didn't really give much information, but we were passing so we wandered in, up a covered staircase and into the galleries. What a surprise - this is a lovely old building sympathetically restored, with a real contemporary feel. There was a really interesting exhibition of travel photos, which we really enjoyed. Best of all, it was really quiet... More

It was suppose to start at 8 pm till 9,30PM, but they have started 30 minutes late,I do not know why. The movie was full of poesie,worth the trip,but for us coming by bus from Sliema,asap the movie... More

We went to a photographic exhibition on places and the people of Malta which was really fascinating. The building itself is unique and I imagine very cool in the summer! Here you will also find the excellent cafe/restaurant, Inspirations, which I have already reviewed. Found just opposite the Auberge de Castille, and the entrance can be found just past the... More

I was there yesterday and apart from a few pictures and drawings, there was nothing on, nothing to see. Perhaps wrong timing

The "inspirations" cafe is a really good pit stop either before or after visiting Valletta. Art exhibitions are frequent. All aspects of the arts are covered though - music, cinema etc. Great place to pop into when in Valletta

The theatre is circular so check the seating when you book, although they do not offer some seats for sale. The Upper deck has quite a lot of stairs. The café sells home made gateaux and pies and also daily specials. It continues to serve snacks and drinks well after the performances end in the evening. All facilities are excellent.... More

Frequent visitor. Sometimes to just see exhibitions by local artisans, schools, and others. Sometimes a film. Sculpture etc. Beautiful even to just walk in and up the steps, feel the cool limestone, walk around, and leave when you feel ready.

Very interesting to see how this "cavalier (forteress in the forteress) has been restored and transformed into a cultural centre.

Stumbled across this place whilst wondering around Valetta. Enjoyed getting lost around the maze of little warren holes. Liked it that much stopped for a drink and s bite to eat. Enjoyable exhibition throughout . Free admission what's not to like about this place

There is free entrance to this attraction housed within a fort within the old city. Supposedly an art centre there was genuinely nothing of interest other than a few random photographs. The building is interesting and has clearly been renovated at great cost. Perhaps we visited at a bad time but stuggle to see its purpose.
