Joining worldwide initiatives marking Tourist Guide Day, on Wednesday 21st February Heritage Malta is inviting the public to enjoy free guided tours at the National Museum of Archaeology and the Tarxien Prehistoric Complex.

Tourist Guide Day is celebrated every year to salute the skills of these professionals who play a key role in shaping travellers’ experiences of their destinations, whilst drawing the attention of local authorities, fellow citizens and the media to the importance of this career.

This year Heritage Malta teamed up with the Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS), Malta’s leading educational institution for tourism and hospitality, to create an added attraction for everyone visiting the National Museum of Archaeology and the Tarxien Prehistoric Complex.

Between 9.30am and 1.30pm, visitors purchasing admission to these sites will be able to join a free guided tour, led by ITS tour-guiding students assisted by their lecturers.

The National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta offers a spectacular collection and an alluring experience of the Maltese Islands’ prehistory and early history. With artefacts dating back from Malta’s Neolithic period up till the early Phoenician period, the museum provides an excellent first step to understanding the richness of the Maltese Islands, their people and their ancestors.

The story of the Tarxien Prehistoric Complex, on the other hand, is encapsulated in the site itself. Its imposing, awe-inspiring entrances, interconnected passages and fascinating prehistoric art depicting spirals and animals, charmingly transport the visitor to the earliest days of civilisation in Malta.

Tours will be delivered in both Maltese and English, on the hour and on a first-come-first-served basis. No prebooking is required.
