Following extensive restoration efforts, the iconic Grand Master’s Palace will once more be welcoming the public during a special opening on Sunday 5th May. The Palace will be open at a reduced price with a captivating programme of activities.

Nestled in the heart of Valletta, the Grand Master’s Palace stands as a symbol of national heritage, commanding attention in St George’s Square. Whilst strolling through its historic corridors and basking in its splendour, visitors unravel a tale which is more than four centuries old and which shaped our country as we know it today.

During this special opening, animated guided tours will provide insights into the Palace’s fascinatingly rich history. Tours will be conducted in both Maltese and English, with sessions scheduled at 09:30 (Maltese), 10:30 (English), 11:30 (Maltese), and 12:30 (English). Pre-booking on or at any Heritage Malta museum or site is required for these tours.

Adding to the event’s allure, the Malta Historical Fencing Association and the Fridericus Rex Malta Falconers will captivate audiences throughout the day, with demonstrations of their skills and the sharing of their knowledge with curious guests.

Those interested in becoming Heritage Malta members will have an opportunity to do so, acquiring a Heritage Malta membership card and unlocking a host of benefits for future explorations of the nation’s heritage. Additionally, students and seniors will be able to collect their Heritage Malta passports on the day.

The Palace will be open to the public from 09:00 until 18:00.
