The video series recalls some of the organisation's major exhibitions.

This episode, which is being released in two parts, revisits the 'Costume in Malta' exhibition held over 20 years ago, in 1998. The exhibition was held at The Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta and presented all aspects of clothing, ranging from the humble attire of country folk to the lavish costumes of the more privileged classes. 

Vicki Ann Cremona, Marquis Nicholas de Piro, Claire Bonavia, Lewis Zammit and Evelyn Baluci, who were involved in various aspects of the setting up and research process, share interesting stories from behind the scenes. They shed light on the discovery of unique treasures and the time-consuming process of making the mannequins for each garment. Part two of 'Rewind - Costume in Malta' will be launched in early September. Click the following link to enjoy the episode:
