Maltese museum in Australia keeps heritage alive
Did you know that there is a museum dedicated to Maltese culture, heritage and traditions in Morwell, Latrobe Valley in Australia?

This is Australia’s first and only museum dedicated to all things Maltese, and its primary aim is to keep Maltese-Australian expats connected to their home country.

The Latrobe Valley Maltese Museum was founded by Mario Sammut in 2018.

The National Archives of Malta

The National Archives of Malta is the government entity that preserves and maintains a significant number of records concerning the history of Malta and provides access to them for research. It holds one of the largest archival collections in Malta, spanning from the 1530s up to the current day.  The National Archives is more than government records. Many private collections are deposited and donated by individuals. These collections add context, depth, variety, as well as a different perspective on history, to the material already held in the repository.  Visit us on https://nationalarchives.gov.mt/en/Pages/default.aspx
