The interactive and immersive online platform brings users closer to Malta’s underwater mysteries.
Recently, the Mediterranean island of Malta has become a sought-after destination for many Middle Eastern travellers, because of the cultural similarities, the impressive natural landscapes, the delicious food, the historical attractions, and the wide range of water and land activities the island offers.
That being so, there is still a part of the Maltese islands that is inaccessible to many visitors, and that is the hidden world beneath the surface of the sea. Many experienced divers have visited Malta just to explore the fascinating depths around the island, and now everyone can enjoy that same experience virtually.
With the new platform ‘The Virtual Museum: Underwater Malta’, users can explore the underwater heritage of the islands through an interactive and immersive online experience.
Utilizing 3D, augmented reality and other media, the point of this site is to give access to, and share, Malta’s exceptional underwater heritage with everyone.
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.

About Malta Tourism Authority:
The Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) was formally set up by the Malta Travel and Tourism Service Act (1999). This clearly defines its role – extending it beyond that of international marketing to include a domestic, motivating, directional, co-ordinating and regulatory role. The Act strengthens the public and private partnership in tourism through greater and more direct participation by the private sector in national planning and development of the industry.
The Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has a diverse role, but one which in essence is all about creating and fostering relationships. The MTA is the tourism industry’s regulator and motivator, its business partner, the country’s brand promoter, and is here to form, maintain and manage meaningful partnerships with all tourism stakeholders. Primarily, this means attracting visitors to the Islands, but also working closely alongside the private sector partners. Importantly, the MTA is also here to help strengthen the industry’s human resources, ensure the highest standards and quality of the Islands’ tourism product, and foster relations with local and international media.
