Fortress Museum

Malta / Europe

Fortress Builders – Fortifications Interpretation Centre explains Malta’s military architecture and heritage. Unlike other museums in the city, the Fortifications Interpretation Centre does not focus on the fortress’ structure as being associated with sieges and warfare; rather it focuses on the fortress as a protector of the citizens it houses. The museum archives the story of how the fortifications were developed and modified over the centuries and the various constructions of the architects, explaining the varied structures to be found around Malta. The museum contains well-made artifacts, many of them are the work of the curator, Stephen Spiteri, along with video installations, touch screens, information panels, games for children, and 3D puzzles, spread over three floors. The roof offers a breath-taking view of Fort Manoel and Fort Tigne.
