Heritage Malta reopens museums and sites in the second week of May

Following the lifting of certain Covid-19 restrictive measures by the Health Authorities, Heritage Malta will be reopening its museums and sites in the week starting 10th May. Opening days and times will be similar to those before the latest measures were put in place, meaning that sites and museums will not be open every day.

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.

Open days will also be resuming as of May, the first one being held on Sunday 16th at the Abbatija tad-Dejr Catacombs in Rabat. Admission will be against a donation of €2 per person and the opening times are from 10am till 4.30pm.

Another open day will be organised on Sunday 30th May at Ta’ Bistra Catacombs, which have been closed for quite some time due to an ongoing project. Admission will also be against a €2 donation.
