Overview
More
This state of the art building is spread over four floors and is not your typical Postal Museum. It offers a run through of Maltese history from the 15th century. The Museum also boasts of two temporary gallery spaces, a large audio-visual room and merchandising store. The temporary gallery spaces currently offer a collection of photographic prints by Richard Ellis, and what is arguably the finest collection of works by Emvin Cremona, regarded by many as one of the best Maltese artists of the 20th century.

A very interesting visit showing the history of the post office on Malta. Lovely old photos as illustration and so much information too! My husband, a retired Royal Mail employee, along with myself thought it excellent.
