The Museum houses a wide range of exhibits depicting the domestic, rural and traditional ways of life in the agrarian economy of the Maltese Islands in centuries past. The Museum is located in the apt setting of late medieval houses in Bernardo de Opuo Street in the Citadel. The houses were probably built around the beginning of the 16th century. The Folklore Museum is a testimony to the many skills, crafts and traditions that have shaped everyday life on the islands.
The museum is closed on the 24, 25 & 31 December, 1 January, and Good Friday
