Gozo Museum



Brief Overview


 The Gozo Museum Project concerns an innovative multi-disciplinary regional museum and cultural centre for the island of Gozo.  The establishment of a Gozo Museum is Heritage Malta’s vision for museum attractions on Gozo.  The project also fulfils the Government’s commitment to make Gozo a distinct tourist destination through the provision of a fresh and novel visitor attraction, in line with excellence and best practices in the international sector concerning museums and conservation.


 This project may be considered for European Union part-financing through Operational Programme I – Fostering a competitive and sustainable economy to meet our challenges – Cohesion Policy 2014-2020.
