Wignacourt Museum
Parish Square, College Street, Rabat
Museum

The Wignacourt Museum has something to offer the young and old alike! The complex includes St Paul's Grotto; the cradle of Christianity in Malta. On site are rock cut rooms which provided shelter to families during the Second World War. These lead to the intricate labyrinth of Catacombs which date to Roman times. Upstairs is the Church of St Publius and the beautiful Baroque building inaugurated by Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt for the chaplains of the Knights of St John who looked after the Grotto. It now houses a magnificent collection of paintings, silver, vestments, and other unique artefacts.
