    • periodic thematic artistic exhibitions
    • audio visual documentaries 
    • an interactive area giving visitors the possibility:

      • to play computer generated thematic games  
    • thematic souvenirs and books
  3. specific aim at contributing towards the overall restoration of vitality throughout the capital city giving rise to a string of businesses attempting to offer tourists an insight into Maltese culture, Malta’s traditions and the ways of life of past and present generations
