St Pauls Catacombs were great. You also get to go into the Wignacourt museum and the ww11 shelters and St Pauls church all for the price of £5 Euros . Museum was nt for me. Maybe for others with an interest in History.

We visited the museum following a visit to the Catacombs of St.Paul's and the WWII Shelters. Must admit that the museum was just an extra on the ticket and we did not know what to expect.

We were both pleasantly surprised, by the amount of paintings and how well organised the exhibition was. If you're into religious paintings then this is the place and there's a great room with Mattia Preti artwork which is truly amazing.

The museum brings together a myriad of attractions, from the roman catacombs to WWII shelters, St Paul's grotto and art collections tied to the Order of St John and Church. It's definitely worth a visit. The entrance fee is also very competitive.
The directions in the catacombs labyrinth are slightly confusing and could do with a bit of an organising but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit nonetheless.

This is a small Museum which has been completely refurbished featuring paintings, silver and furniture. Also included in the price of admission is a visit to St. Paul's Grotto, where St. Paul is believed to have founded the first Christian Community after he was shipwrecked on the island in the year 60 AD,, catacombs and shelters where the locals took refuge during WWII.

Good place to visit - good audio guide that shows you firstly round catacombs and world war two shelters but then the galleries as well. They take a credit card or driving licence so that you take the audios back !!!!
