MUŻA is the new National Museum of Art in Malta and Heritage Malta’s flagship project for Valletta’s European Capital of Culture title in 2018. It represents a significant development in the history of museums in Malta as a new museum typology in line with the latest developments in Europe and elsewhere. It shall promote greater participation by the community through a story-based narrative of display and related objects and empower a broader range of access tools to experience heritage and culture. MUŻA is located at Auberge d’Italie, where the first Malta Museum was established in 1924. In 1920 the building was also chosen as the seat of the then Valletta Museum where the national collection, including what was then known as the fine arts section, was put on display.
