Please note that the Palace State Rooms will be closed to the general public from 1st February 2020 until further notice. This closure is necessary in view of the extensive restoration project currently underway at the Grand Master’s Palace. Apart from this €10 million project co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, a separate project focusing on the conservation of the Perez d’Aleccio great siege wall paintings is also underway in collaboration with the University of Malta.
While Heritage Malta has done its very best to keep the Palace State Rooms open to the public for as long as possible, albeit with a degree of inconvenience, works have now reached a stage where this is no longer possible. In the coming weeks, fixed scaffolding will be erected in the Throne Room while corridor ceilings will be restored.
For these works to proceed in a safe and efficient manner, access to the State Rooms will be limited and/or difficult until the 31st January, followed by their definite closure from 1st February onwards. Works will not affect the accessibility for the Palace Armoury, which shall remain open daily through the entrance from Merchant Street.
While we apologise for any inconvenience, please do not hesitate to contact us if any further clarifications are required.
