Constructing handmade nativity scenes set in elaborate landscapes called “cribs” is a centuries-old tradition that carries strong significance in Maltese culture. This year, in partnership with the museum, the nation of Malta sponsored a crib decorating contest. The top ten entries will be featured in this all-new exhibition, Christmas in Malta. Topping out at over 7 feet in diameter, these intricately-sculpted works of art will amaze even the youngest museum guest.
