The Theatre Museum, Valletta

In October 1997 Patrimonju set up 'Il-Mu┼╝ew tat-Teatru', in association with the Manoel Theatre Management Committee.  This small but interesting museum covers the history of theatre in Malta, and highlights its cultural value.  The items on display had been assembled from a number of private and public sources, including a number of exhibits generously donated by private collectors.
A publication entitled The Theatre in Malta was published to complement the opening of this museum.  This provides the reader with a historical background of the building of the two national theatres, and the history of performances in Malta.
This museum is located within the Manoel Theatre Complex in Valletta.  To visit the Manoel Theatre’s website click here.
