Heritage Malta is calling all history and national heritage enthusiasts to brace themselves for a colourful journey in the heart of what makes us who we are, by joining the activities listed in its newly launched calendar.

Comprising more than 100 activities, the calendar is designed to delight both the general public and people with more specific tastes, and caters for all ages. The activities offer a full selection of experiences - from cooking sessions, curious adventures and courses on nature's creatures for the youngest among us, to special openings of normally closed sites, activities linked to old traditions, sea tours, talks by curators and former Shipyard workers, guided walks, unique exhibitions, equinox and solstice experiences, and exclusive activities for members, amongst many more.

This year the calendar is also endowed with activities organised as part of the maltabiennale.art programme, to be held between 13 March and 31 May. Organised by MUŻA - the National Museum of Art, on behalf of Heritage Malta and Arts Council Malta, in cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade and the Malta Tourism Authority, the maltabiennale.art is the first initiative of its kind in our country. Further information about it may be obtained here: https://maltabiennale.art/

Heritage Malta CEO Noel Zammit commented that it is Heritage Malta's duty not only to safeguard our country's rich heritage entrusted to it, but also to deliver it in an accessible and attractive manner to the public for appreciation and enjoyment. He said that this calendar of events embodies this mission, and urged the Maltese and Gozitan public to participate and take advantage of Heritage Malta's Passport schemes.
