During the British period, Birgu was the location of the Mediterranean fleet and there was a need for a bakery.

This Royal Naval Bakery was built between 1842 and 1845 based on a design by architect William Scamp. The architect may have been inspired by Windsor Castle.

On very busy days, the bakery produced bread and cookies with a total weight of 14,000 kg.

After the Second World War, the bakery was rehabilitated into offices and shops, and the headquarters of Admiralty Constabulary (Royal Marine Police).

After the British left in 1979 the building fell into disrepair.

A committee for the collection of artifacts was established in 1988 and the first plans were made for a museum. 4 years later, the Malta Maritime Museum was opened in this building.
