As guardians of over 8,000 years of history, Heritage Malta is the national agency for museums, conservation practice and cultural heritage. 

With a portfolio that encompasses archaeological sites, baroque auberges and palaces, catacombs, forts, natural landscapes and UNESCO listed Neolithic monuments, Heritage Malta is the face of the Maltese Islands. More than simply advancing the stock of intellectual and cultural capital, our vocation is to offer a mirror to society through a heritage which is ‘Part of Us‘, because we are our history and this is our cultural identity.

Every generation, monument, artefact, language, specimen, and celebration has a story to share. Heritage Malta ensures that these stories are preserved for posterity and are made accessible for everyone, everywhere to experience and enjoy.

Our Identity

Inspire future generations

Heritage Malta does not only look towards the heritage it curates to ensure its longevity, but also towards the public and the future generations it wishes to inspire. Therefore, heritage interpretation, outreach services, consultancy, internationalisation, corporate events, publishing and public events such as exhibitions, cook-a-longs and open-days comprise the bulk of Heritage Malta’s focus.

A future for our Heritage

Aware of the role our Heritage has played in shaping who we are and where we stand, it is Heritage Malta’s chief mission to breathe new life in it, to render it safe, secure and resilient.

This brings Heritage Malta’s diagnostic labs and conservation and restoration teams at the core of its mandate and activity. Through these, the agency ensures the preservation of the Islands’ heritage for posterity, not only as a showcase of the past but as a living legacy with a key role in the way 21st century Malta wants to shape its future.

From stone-age settlers to seafaring entrepreneurs; from empire builders to inspirational Maltese leaders. Heritage Malta is the face of the Maltese Islands with all the legacy we inherited; with all the heritage we carry with us into our future.

Meet the Team

Gradually climbing up the ranks, moving through IT, finance, marketing and business development, Noel Zammit was appointed CEO of Heritage Malta in 2017.

Software engineering skills and national heritage are rarely uttered in the same sentence. However, as CEO for Malta’s national agency for museums, conservation practice and cultural heritage, Mr Zammit found himself relying on his extensive experience in the former to improve and promote the latter.

An alumnus from the London School of Economics, Mr Zammit’s professional career as software engineer began in Malta and continued in the United Kingdom, where he provided development solutions to multinationals, giving them a competitive edge in their respective sectors. Eventually, he returned to Malta, working within the Malta Centre for Restoration until it was ultimately absorbed by Heritage Malta.

“In my few years in this role, I have pooled my knowledge and experience, spanning over two decades, to lead a massive internal cultural shift within Heritage Malta, through careful restructuring, rebranding and strategic alignment. Heritage Malta clients and observers have surely noticed our focus on digitisation and market presence of our cultural heritage, not just as a way of remaining accessible through COVID-19 or to ensure long term sustainability but also as a way of preserving our heritage and living up to our motto: ensuring a future to our past.”
