Malta may be a small island but it’s huge when it comes to culture, history and heritage!
Heritage Malta is the national agency for museums, conservation practice and cultural heritage. Their mission is to ensure that elements of cultural heritage entrusted to it are protected and made accessible to the public.
Heritage Malta provides access to a number of sites across Malta and Gozo from War Museums to Archeological Sites and Temples. These fantastic sites open up their doors to years of history, culture and heritage.
Tickets to all museums and sites can normally be purchased on entry, however, there are a number of multisite tickets that can be purchased which provide great value for money if you are looking to visit a number of attractions.
The largest of these tickets is the Multisite pass. This pass provides admission to 25 Heritage Malta sites and can provide savings of over €200. Tickets are priced at €50 per adult and €25 per child. Family tickets are available for up to 2 adults & 2 children available at €110. You also receive a further 10% discount on Heritage Malta merchandise from any museum shop.
Now 25 sites do take a bit of time to get to and view, this ticket is best for the real historian and museum enthusiasts out there but do not fear for there are a number of additional options available on a more local level. Just to name a couple…
Discover Gozo – admission for 7 sites and museums across Gozo. Tickets are priced at just €13 for adults and €7 for children.
