We visited St Paul`s Catacombs a day or so before Wignacourt. They are sensational, but I was a little put off by the heaving crowds, who all seemed to find the need to talk atthe top of their voices.
I decided to return to Rabat...More
We came here to visit the St.Pauls catacombs and grotto.
It was east to get around and well laid out considering we had access to the catacombs and grotto.
The rest of the museum was good but not so interesting to my sons so we...More

The ticket to the museum also gives you access to St Paul’s grotto and the catacombs. My partner and I had an interesting visit to all 3. A few issues should be shared, firstly we had an audio tour which was helpful but each entry...More
This is a really beautiful museum to visit with amazing are and ancient artifacts. I didn’t realise how long I had been them just going from room to room . Definitely worth a visit and I recommend this place
Really interesting place full of different artefacts, well worth the €5 entrance to get into the WWII shelters and catacombs as well.
The only thing I didn’t do which in hindsight I would recommend is get the audio guide as there’s not too much information...More
Enjoyable couple of hours seeing the catacombs, grotto, WW2 shelters and museum. Discounted price for chldren over 12, so our family of 4, was just €17, our kids are 16 and 13. If you like your religious art and artifacts the museum is a must,...More
A big thanks to Michelle and her team for the really interesting tour! Very recommended - great museum with a lot of different things to see. This was my second visit to the musuem in the past 3 months and I have really enjoyed myself...More
the museum is the most interesting tourist attraction of Il-Rabat. The building is a beatiful example of Baroque architecture. The name of the object comes from the surname, Grand Master of the Maltese Order. Alof de Wignacourt, who ruled over the Maltese Islands

Hello, Saint Paul's catacombs is much bigger and more famous. However I found it very busy. The Catacombs in Wigancourt, were just as interesting and there was almost no-one there, which made it very atmospheric. Also the Museum at Wigancourt was worth going to. I would recommend Wigancourt of the two. Take a small torch to see into the noks and crannies!
Have a lovely holiday.
