Went out of our way only to find the place closed, very disappointed. Went to find what was happening to the paintings from the Tourist Office in Valletta. The staff did't seem to know much about the paintings and what had happened to them.
The building where this Museum was housed is currently being significantly renovated and accordingly it was closed. We were unable to establish if it was going to be temporarily relocated elsewhere in Valletta.
The collection, according to the museum brochures, the museum collection is small in comparison to large city art museums but the Collection is terrific. When it finishes is updated remodeling, it will make for a wonderful visit.
