Mdina Cathedral Museum


The Mdina Cathedral Museum is housed within a magnificent Baroque building with a rich history that traces its origins back to the early 1700s. Originally constructed as a seminary under the patronage of Bishop Paul Alphéran de Bussan, the building has undergone a transformative journey throughout the centuries. In 1969, it was officially inaugurated as a museum, preserving and showcasing a remarkable collection of artworks and historical treasures.

Within the museum’s walls, visitors can explore a captivating array of artefacts that span centuries, with some dating as far back as the 1300s. These include a diverse range of ecclesiastical items and objects d’art associated with the Mdina Cathedral, allowing visitors to delve into the rich religious heritage of the region.
