On an almost annual basis Palazzo Falson hosts a temporary exhibition dedicated to some aspect of the decorative or fine arts. These shows take as their starting point an artefact or group of artefacts in the permanent collection of Palazzo Falson and build around it by loaning several artefacts from Maltese private and public collections. The resulting exhibition is an in-depth look at that particular type of artefact and provides probably for the first and only time the possibility of comparing and contrasting so many of these objects gathered under one roof.
