Last op­por­tu­nity to visit the Fine Arts Mu­seum at the Ad­mi­ralty House dur­ing Notte Bianca

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Her­itage Malta will once again be play­ing a lead­ing role dur­ing Notte Bianca. For this oc­ca­sion, Her­itage Malta mu­se­ums in Val­letta and in Vit­to­riosa will open for free and the pub­lic will have the last op­por­tu­nity to visit the Na­tional Mu­seum of Fine Arts at the Ad­mi­ralty House.

The Na­tional Mu­seum of Fine Arts at South Street will be clos­ing its doors for the last time on Sun­day af­ter 42 years. The build­ing’s name Ad­mi­ralty House owes its ori­gin to the Bri­tish colo­nial pe­riod as this build­ing was used as the of­fi­cial res­i­dence of the Bri­tish Ad­mi­ral of the Mediter­ranean fleet.

The col­lec­tion shall be trans­ferred to the new mu­seum at the new venue, MUZA, the new na­tional com­mu­nity art mu­seum, at the Au­berge d’Italie, in 2018 when Val­letta will be Euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Cul­ture.

Other Her­itage Malta mu­se­ums in Val­letta will also open for free dur­ing Notte Bianca. These are the Na­tional Mu­seum of Ar­chae­ol­ogy, the Palace Ar­moury and the State Rooms and Fort St. Elmo which houses the Na­tional War Mu­seum.

For the first time, Notte Bianca will in­clude Cot­ton­era. On this oc­ca­sion the In­quisi­tor’s Palace and the Malta Mar­itime Mu­seum will open for free to the gen­eral pub­lic.

Apart from nor­mal open­ing hours Her­itage Malta mu­se­ums will open from 7.30pm till mid­night, last ad­mis­sion at 11.30pm
