Venture into the depths off Malta and Gozo through the immersive, interactive ‘The Virtual Museum: Underwater Malta' experience.

Far too often, underwater cultural heritage sites are out of sight and more often than not out of mind, and the reason for this is simple – the physical barrier created by the sea itself.

To date, only divers or people in submarines were able to visit these historic time capsules off the coast of Malta and Gozo, and yet there were still limitations brought about by depth, remoteness and legislation.

Enter The Virtual Museum: Underwater Malta, an interactive and immersive online platform that brings underwater cultural heritage to the surface and into the homes of the general public.

Using 3D, virtual reality and other media, the aim of this website is to provide access to, and share, Malta’s unique underwater cultural heritage with all members of the public.

This collaborative effort between Heritage Malta, the University of Malta and the Malta Tourism Authority covers everything from a 2,700-year-old Phoenician shipwreck to World War One and World War Two aircraft, submarines and battleships.

The sites presented here also form part of various ongoing projects, such as the continued investigation and deep-water excavation of the Phoenician shipwreck, and the recording and documentation of wartime vessels and aircrafts.
