Free entrance to four museums on June 7
Entrance to four Heritage Malta museums will be free of charge on June 7, the Sette Giugno public holiday.
The museums are the National Museum of Natural History in Mdina, the Malta Maritime Museum and the Inquisitor's Palace in Vittoriosa, and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta.
During this open day, the National Museum of Fine Arts will host the event RE-PaintED, the third edition, organised by the friends of the museum.
This group is aimed to bring together people who share an enthusiasm for the arts, their study, enjoyment and promotion.
Artists are invited to visit the museum to paint and be inspired by pictures from the permanent collection.
Additionally, two models will be taking the pose of subjects in paintings (Le Valentin's Judith and Pacecco de Rosa's St John the Baptist) while well known Maltese artists will be painting on site.
Those visiting the National Museum of Natural History in Mdina will have the opportunity to join a tour of the museum to further their knowledge on the subject.
Tours in Maltese will commence at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
During this open day visitors will also have the opportunity to become members of Heritage Malta at a discounted rate.
Membership includes free entrance to Heritage Malta's sites and museums for one year and a 50 per cent discount on the normal ticket price for admission to the Hypogeum.
Apart from discounts on Heritage Malta's publications, members also have the opportunity to participate in events that are organised specifically for them throughout the year.
All four museums will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission at 4.30 p.m).
