Muza, the national art museum in Malta is located just around the corner from the St. John's cathedral and the Upper Barrakka Gardens. It features both local and international artists and both contemporary and traditional art over several floors. There are some fantastic paintings of the waterfront and Maltese history, as well as great sculptures. There is a nice courtyard with access to the restaurant and the coffee shop and bar that us located in the museum. On the ground floor is an exhibition of community artwork which is particularly nice. Make sure you set a side at least an hour and a half for going though the museum and a little more of you plan on lunch as well. If you are into art it is a must see stop on Valletta.

Beautifully and sensitively restored 16th century mansion originally built to house Italian-speaking knights of the Order of St John and now home to Malta’s National Museum of Art. The collection is an interesting and eclectic mix of paintings, sculpture and prints including interactive digital displays. Mostly Maltese and Italian art from the 17th-century onwards including a section highlighting the period under British rule. Unfortunately some exhibits lack descriptive labels and the positioning of some items needs to be reconsidered. Otherwise a welcome addition to the cultural scene of Valletta.

Beautiful museum with a varied collection. It's a bit tricky to navigate inside, but we'll worth the visit. Do get the combi-ticket with the armory.

Nice organisation of art pieces, some were missing for restoration.

While the place offers a great collection of artworks from both Maltese and foreign artists, it seems to be lacking when it comes to organisation. Quite a number of artwors aren't labelled at all and one is left to wonder about the art and the artist. Some labels that are actually present aren't located next to their respective artwork. Lightning could be better in certain spots. There are also a number of empty displays. Some of the rooms even look disorganised. All of this is a shame since the collection is impressive and varied.
