Welcome to the Malta Postal Museum - home to an extensive collection of postal artefacts related to Malta’s long and colourful history. Our museum is housed in a converted Valletta home which has retained its Baroque façade but has also been extensively remodeled throughout its interior to best display the collection in a contemporary setting.

Spread over four floors, the museum explores centuries of postal history starting way back in the 16th century during the time of the Order of St. John in Malta. The collection not only marks historic milestones but also tells the stories of the numerous individuals who played a part in the development of Malta’s communication.

The building was designed and equipped to handle the needs of visitors with special mobility requirements and our museum has a lift to all floors. The building is fully air-conditioned.

CORPUS DISEGNO - AN EXHIBITION OF DRAWINGS BY MADELEINE GERA

1-23 November 2019

A second exhibiton sees the return of artist Madeleine Gera to the Malta Postal Museum. She has gathered a collection of fine drawings, mainly nudes and portraits that were executed during her studies abroad and later on in Malta. They are personal and rather idiosyncratic reflecting a given mood or style. In fact they are a private peep into her sketch books and portfolio revealing at one an artist who enjoys experimentation and the creation of tension while capturing the essence of her sitters.

 

The entire museum is available for hire for private functions. However, if you prefer something smaller, we are blessed with a wonderful rooftop terrace which is ideal for corporate entertaining. A large gallery on the second floor has the capacity to screen films and can be used for intimate musical events / concerts, product launches, lectures, workshops and meetings.
