‘Behind Closed Doors: Fort St Angelo and the Royal Navy 1906-1979’ was exhibited at Fort St Angelo in 2019. It commemorated forty years since Freedom Day. Now, Heritage Malta is offering you the opportunity to visit the exhibition online, from the comfort of home!
While the bigger picture of this exhibition presents the naval use of the fort and the architectural modifications which were done to it to address the necessities of the time, the core of this exhibition focuses on personal recollections. The exhibition unfolds over five different areas inside Fort St Angelo, each represented with a dot on the map below. Visitors can explore and discover the history and use of this military building, together with life at the fort during the Royal Navy’s occupation, particularly through re-created areas in the fort such as the dormitory, the bar, and different uniforms used during this period.
