Maltese-themed tour at Palazzo Falson
On the 14 March, Palazzo Falson will be hosting a guided tour about the Maltese artefacts found in Olof Gollcher’s collection at the palazzo
Museum Host, Maria Eileen Fsadni, will guide you through the charming 800-year-old Maltese Palazzo highlighting the artefacts that are united by their connection to Maltese history.
The last owner of Palazzo Falson was Captain Olof Frederick Gollcher, who bought the palazzo in 1927. He was very interested in history, archaeology and the Maltese heritage. Being a a man of varied interests, he collected items from the very everyday culinary curiosities such as the Baqra – formerly used to cook Malta’s traditional rabbit stew – to prestigious books such as Della Descrittione di Malta by the 17th century Maltese nobleman Gian Francesco Abela.
Entrance is 10 euros for adults, 5 euros for senior citizens and students. Children between the ages of 6 and 12 enter for free but must be accompanied by an adult.
The duration of the tour is around 1 hour and only 5 people will allowed in during each tour.
