Natural Science Museum
The Natural Science Museum is a museum located in Victoria, on the island of Gozo, Malta, open to public since 1991. Known as the Citadel of Victoria, the group of houses is which the museum is located date back to various ages: the older one, which was an inn to 1495, the other to the 17th century.
The Natural Science Museum shows collections "relating to the Island’s geology, minerals, marine life, insects, local habitats and ecosystems" as well as national plants (including the Maltese Rock Centaury), human and animal evolution.
During later years, this building was used as an inn for visitors, and is mentioned in Thomas McGill’s “Handbook, or Guide, for Strangers visiting Malta” of 1839, and described as an excellent house of entertainment offering clean and comfortable beds and reasonably-priced dinners.
During World War II the building served as a shelter for families who sought refuge during aerial bombings.
