An hour @ the museum 4 Malta 4 The National Museum of Fine Arts, Valletta

PowerPoint Presentation:

The museum houses key works, including noteworthy examples of international importance, from the national collection of Malta. A conspicuous number of works originally belonged to the Order of the Knights of St John and come from the Magisterial Palace, the various auberges in which the knights took up residence, churches belonging to the Order, and the other places falling directly under the administration of the Order. To this original nucleus were added important acquisitions affected through the local and international market, bequests by public spirited individuals and donations. The architecture of the building is an important example of the mid-eighteenth century late baroque style in Malta boasting one of the finest main staircases to be seen on the island.
