Works being carried out on the Malta at War Museum at Couvre Porte in Vittoriosa by the Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna were this morning visited by Fair Competition Minister Jason Azzopardi.

The place is currently being transformed into a museum that would reflect how Maltese society lived during the Second World War, giving visitors and interactive experience.

The plan is that the museum would be opened to the public on April 15, on 70th anniversary of the award of the George Cross to Malta.

The minister praised the work FWA was doing and said the organisation was an example of how a voluntary organisation could administer EU funds well.

The works on the museum are being carried out with the help of a 500,000 euro investment from the European Regional Development Fund.

FWO president Mario Farrugia said the museum will now cover more than 900 metres square and the new extension will permit the development of  a historical museum incorporating nine walk through galleries each describing Maltese life during the war.
