Il-Ħaġar | Heart of Gozo Museum and Cultural Centre is located at the heart of Victoria (Rabat), the main town of the island of Gozo. It strives to present the visitor with an authentic experience of the Gozitan heritage and Christian culture that form this island’s community. Il-Ħaġar recounts the history of this island through its people: their beliefs, their abilities and their products.
Apart from the permanent collection, the Centre also includes a temporary exhibition space, a number of audiovisual rooms, a rooftop terrace bar, just refurbished, providing spectacular views of St George’s Basilica, the Castello with the skyline of Victoria, and the rural landscape of Gozo.
Run and operated entirely by volunteers, the Centre is open seven days a week from 9:00 to 17:00 and is very active in the cultural and artistic scene of the island.
