National Museum of Fine Arts
Situated in South Street, the National Museum of Fine Arts museum houses a collection of fine arts, displayed in a broadly chronological order with paintings grouped together by school, ranging from the early Renaissance to modern times.

Italian Baroque features mainly Mattia Preti (1613-99) and paintings by the Caravaggists Mattias Stomer (1600-50), Jean Valentin de Boulogne (1601-32) and by Guido Reni (1575-1642). Art of the 18th century is largely represented by Antoine de Favray.

Other paintings by Maltese artists such as Francesco Zahra and Giuseppe Grech suggest the continued influence of Roman art on local developments.
