Malta Falconry Centre
A family run venture with a passion for anything with wings, the Malta Falconry Centre was set up to reintroduce the ancient art of falconry in Malta. It is in fact the first Bird of Prey centre on the islands and has an important educational role to play for both locals and foreigners to appreciate these beautiful creatures. With free flying displays of well trained birds and a number of captive birds on view, there is also great entertainment value. The Malta Falconry Centre is set out on vast and very well kept grounds with private parking, open spaces fully accessible for the visitors and a coffee shop. The experienced falconers put on a captivating and interesting show, and proudly demonstrate the majestic sight of these birds in free flight. They also offer falconry experiences and bird handling sessions.
The aviary collection includes The Peregrine Falcon (The Maltese Falcon), Bald Eagle, African Fish Eagle, Steppe Eagle, African Vultures and the Golden Eagle amongst others! The Centre is open between Tuesdays and Sundays from 9.00 till 15.00 (1st Oct till 30th June) and from 9.00 till 12.30 (1st Jul till 30th Sept) while closed on all Mondays. Scheduled display times are daily (except Mondays) at 11.00 and 14.00 in Winter and 11.00 in Summer. Displays are subject to weather conditions.
