Last chance to view de Valette’s dagger before it’s shipped back to Paris

De Valette dagger exhibition extended until Friday

Heritage Malta will be extending the de Valette dagger exhibition until Friday, September 8 before returning it to the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Entrance is free.

During a press conference, Culture Minister Owen Bonnici said the public had enthusiastically welcomed the exhibition and a decision was taken to extend its viewing.

In five months, visits at the National Museum of Archaeology increased by 39.16%, mostly due to the exhibition 

Bonnici took the opportunity to remind “the importance of educating and instilling a love for Malta’s history and historical heritage in our future generations as a way of securing and keeping alive our country’s historical past”.

Executive Chairman Kenneth Gambin emphasised Heritage Malta’s mission to make sites more accessible to the general public through various events, including open days, throughout the year as part of the social responsibility valued by Heritage Malta.

This is not the only open day organised by Heritage Malta on Friday, a public holiday.

On the same day, the public can enjoy entry to Fort St Angelo at a discounted price.

On September 8, the National Museum of Archaeology will be open between 9am and 6pm, while Fort St Angelo will be open between 9am and 6.30pm.
