“Wonderfully restored building, shame about the exibitions.”

St James' Cavalier Centre for Creativity
Reviewed March 3, 2012

This place is worth visiting to view the building but little else. I have been many times but am usually VERY disappointed by the pointless and silly displays. Whilst I was there this time there was an exhibition of WATER! It was supposed to be Black Sea water, I think, but who knows, especially a cynic like me! It came in plastic bottles that might be found on a beach. If you want proper art try elsewhere. Much more could be made of this venue if only they could find real artists and nice things to look at. Good for toilets and you maybe there when the cafe is open if you are lucky. Try to avoid education trips when the place is overrun by little kids. UGH!

Always something new and different being exhibited, in the very historical setting of a Cavalier of the Knights of St James

A superb renovation, a role model in how to bring a heritage building into active life. Make sure you learn of the history of the building; from the Templars to the Brits and how the new spaces relate to its history.
The constantly changing programme keeps the place lively: a must see in Valetta.

Amazing adaptation of massive historic construction to dispaly modern art, theatre, cinema worth visiting just for the stunning staircase; there is also an excellent snack bar/restaurant inside and on a terrace.
