Citadel – Gozo Nature Museum

The Gozo Nature Museum is situated behind the Courts of Justice at the Citadel, Victoria, Gozo. It is housed within a cluster of three interconnected domestic buildings dating back to the 1600s, and boasting several authentic architectural features. Serving as an inn in later years, the property was also utilised as a shelter for families who sought refuge during aerial bombings in the Second Wold War.

Mainly, the museum focuses on Gozo’s natural resources and on their use by the island’s inhabitants. Its collection is distributed on two floors.

The exhibits presented at ground floor relate to geology, minerals, human and animal evolution, and marine life. Exhibits in the geology section include marine organisms which were deposited on the sea floor between 35 and 5 million years ago, and fragments of fossil bones from the Maltese Islands. The majority of the specimens in the mineral collection come from the generous donation of Dr Lewis Mizzi; a Gozitan lawyer and mineralogist of great repute.
