Heritage Malta is opening the National Museum of Archaeology free of charge on Sunday 8th April.

Housed in the Auberge de Provence, the National Museum of Archaeology exhibits a spectacular range of artefacts from Malta’s Neolithic period up to the Phoenician Period. Apart from the earliest tools used by the prehistoric inhabitants and other artefacts which give us an insight of their daily lives, highlights in the museum include theSleeping Lady from the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, the Venus of Malta from Ħaġar Qim, bronze daggers from Tarxien Temples, the Horus & Anubis pendant and anthropomorphic sarcophagus from the Phoenician Period.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view the recently inaugurated display of the national coins and medals collection, and the temporary exhibition which explains the exciting new information on Malta’s prehistory of the FRAGSUS project. One can also appreciate ongoing conservation work at the impressive Gran Salon, with its richly painted walls and wooden beamed ceiling.

During the open day two guided tours will be held at 11.00hrs and 14.00hrs, each limited to 50 persons.

The National Museum of Archaeology opens between 09.00hrs till 18.00hrs, last admission at 17.30hrs.
