The Sanctuary Museum of Zabbar, in our opinion one of the finest examples of its kind on Malta, contains the largest collection of maritime votive paintings of the Order of St John in Malta. Other items on display include a picture gallery, sedan chairs, a portable altar, a unique large painting of the Gran Carrack Sant Anna, former titular paintings, a medieval fresco, a complete ceremonial suit of armour, statues, silverware, stamps, documents, coins, medals, sculptured wooden fixtures from the ship R.M.S. Alcantara, the sole surviving plague hearse, the clock mechanism formerly in the Sanctuary’s belfry and the remains of an R.A.F. Vulcan Bomber which exploded over Zabbar in 1975. The museum, which was inaugurated in 1954, was refurbished in 2003.
