Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

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 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 card­holder 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 card­holder up to 15 free tick­ets to share with family and friends and a five-year mem­ber­ship en­ti­tles the card­holder to 30 free tick­ets to share with family and friends.

The prices of the mem­ber­ship scheme are as fol­lows: • adult 18-59 years: €45 for 1 year,

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