Heritage Malta gears up for summer
Following several months of restricted opening hours and at times even complete closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Heritage Malta is now gearing up for summer with more frequent opening times at its sites and museums from the beginning of June until the end of October.
“The pandemic was a direct challenge to Heritage Malta’s mission of accessibility, forcing the agency to twice close its doors entirely to the public and to reopen with restricted admissions and opening hours. However, the agency was proactive and foresighted enough to rise to the occasion and adapt to the new circumstances. We now feel more prepared than ever before for the busiest season of the year and look forward to welcoming our visitors throughout a fruitful summer,” said Noel Zammit, Heritage Malta’s Chief Executive Officer.
Besides more frequent opening times, during the summer months Heritage Malta will also be regularly organising open days at sites that are normally kept closed to the public, and will be issuing various special offers to further enhance the visitor’s experience.
As has been the practice during the past months, all visits to Heritage Malta sites and museums will be conducted in strict adherence to Public Health regulations related to COVID-19.
