Photographer's Note

If you are going to visit just one museum in Malta then it should be Palazzo Falson in Mdina. This is how I was recommended this museum and it really was worth the visit ...

Palazzo Falson is the second oldest building of Mdina and was formerly known as the Norman House. This historic house contains the extraordinay collections of one man Olaf Gollcher and there are some 45 different collections of such contrasting items as silver, armour, books ,furniture, arms and paintings. Captain Gollcher was a philanthropist, an artist and a keen collector. His collections are vast - to give an idea there are 80 oriental rugs and the impressive silver collection has more than 800 items includes some important pieces of Maltese, Continental and British silver, As regards the books - there are some 4500 and also valuable manuscripts.

On my photo - the courtyard of the Palazzo Falson.
