Ensuring a future for our past
Heritage Malta is the national agency for museums, conservation practice and cultural heritage. It was created by the Cultural Heritage Act which was enacted in 2002.
Originally Heritage Malta was entrusted with the management of museums, sites and their collections but in 2005, it took over of the former Malta Centre for Restoration to become responsible also for conservation.
Heritage Malta seeks to provide all those visiting its sites and museums with an enhanced experience and to add value to Malta’s tourism potential thus contributing significantly to the economy.
The agency gives importance to education particularly focusing on children taking part in organised school visits. It has available educational programmes based on the educational curriculum to address specific areas of study in an edutainment way.
Heritage Malta is also committed to bring culture closer to the people by facilitating interpretation as well as physical and intellectual accessibility. It achieves this by means of temporary exhibitions, public lectures, heritage trails and other specialised events.
