Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Her­itage Malta, in its ef­forts to in­crease ac­ces­si­bil­ity to all mu­se­ums and sites, launched a new mem­ber­ship scheme of­fer­ing new ini­tia­tives and a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories.

This new mem­ber­ship scheme, launched dur­ing an open day at Her­itage Malta’s Con­ser­va­tion Lab­o­ra­to­ries in Bighi, fol­lows the Stu­dent Mem­ber­ship Scheme aimed at stu­dents at­tend­ing pri­mary schools. The main aim of such ini­tia­tives is to in­crease the amount of lo­cal vis­i­tors to­wards mu­se­ums and her­itage sites. The cur­rent mem­ber­ship scheme en­ti­tles the card holder to free un­re­stricted en­try to all Her­itage Malta mu­se­ums and sites ex­cept for the Hy­pogeum for which mem­bers are of­fered a 50% dis­count.

Other ben­e­fits in­clude dis­counts from the mu­seum shops, dis­counts on ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised by the na­tional agency, and par­tic­i­pa­tion in free ex­clu­sive events or­gan­ised specif­i­cally for mem­bers.

The new scheme of­fers four mem­ber­ship cat­e­gories with one, three or five year op­tions. Through the new scheme an adult or joint mem­bers can ad­mit up to six chil­dren free.

Also, chil­dren, 12 years and over, from within mem­bers’ house­hold are en­ti­tled to their own mem­ber­ship card per­mit­ting them in­de­pen­dent en­try. Through these im­prove­ments the mem­ber­ship card can be shared with grand­chil­dren or child’s best friend.

A three year mem­ber­ship en­ti­tles the card holder up to 15 free tick­ets to share with fam­ily and friends, and a five year mem­ber­ship en­ti­tles the card holder to 30 free tick­ets to share with fam­ily and friends.

The prices of the mem­ber­ship scheme are as fol­lows:

• • • • adult 18-59yrs: €45 for 1yr, €110 for 3 yrs, €185 for 5 yrs; joint adult 18-59yrs: €80 for 1yr, €195 for 3yrs, €325 for 5yrs; con­ces­sions 60+/dis­abled per­son/stu­dent: €35 for 1yr, €85 for 3yrs, €140 for 5yrs; joint con­ces­sions 60+/dis­abled per­son/stu­dent: €60 for 1yr, €150 for 3yrs, €245 for 5yrs.
