Malta21 Rabat Wignacourt Museum


The Wignacourt Museum is a museum in Rabat, Malta. It is housed in an 18th-century Baroque building which housed the Chaplains of the Order of St. John, and it is named after Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt, who ruled over the Maltese Islands between 1601 and 1622. The Wignacourt Museum is linked to St. Pauland#39;s Grotto, where Paul the Apostle is believed to have stayed while he was shipwrecked in Malta. This is the place where St Paul the Apostle, in A.D. 60, is believed to have founded the first Christian Community on the island. On 24 June 1981, the building was opened as a museum, containing exhibits from the Church of St. Paul and a number of affiliated churches, as well as other artifacts donated by private individuals. The core of the museumand#39;s art gallery is based on the collection of notary Francesco Catania
