October 2020 Museum and Site Opening Hours

“In a time when many people around the world are separated from one another due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, museums and cultural sites are currently playing a very important role to bring humanity together. While we are coming up with various initiatives to offer virtual tours to the public, nothing compares to actually visiting the site and experiencing it personally,” explained Heritage Malta CEO, Noel Zammit.
