Housed in a formal naval bakery in Vittoriosa, the Malta Maritime Museum is yet one more example of how proud the country is of their history – this time, with the focus being the seas surrounding the island. And because there is an ongoing search for more artifacts, it's a site that's worth revisiting on subsequent trips.
From the largest Roman anchor in the world to Napoleonic battleship parts to more than 60 traditional Maltese boats, this 20,000+ collection not only exhibits Maltese Maritime history, but puts into context the importance of seafaring on a global scale throughout the ages.
The Malta Maritime Museum is open seven days a week from 9am-5pm. It is closed on New Year's Day, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve & Day. Tickets are €5 for adults, with discounts for seniors, children and students. Children 5 and under are free.
