The opening of Muza is another milestone for Maltese history and culture, Minister Owen Bonnici said at the opening of what will be a museum dedicated to all forms of art in Valletta. Throughout the years the government has pushed the need for society to appreciate culture more and the museum is yet another step in this direction. The project, Muzew Nazzjonali tal-arti, launched during the 2018 Valletta European Capital of Culture, is not only a museum but an initiative for the future generations to appreciate and unlock past culture. Bonnici reflected over numerous other cultural projects which the government had created. Today is a special day for art and history, he said. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said he was very pleased to be part of the inauguration of the Musuem, a place where the past and present come together under the same roof. It is a place where contemporary artists, foreigners and Maltese, meet to discuss new ideas within the capital city. The musuem is a space for creativity, education, as there is a variety of private collections. Muscat said that the musuem is also an infrastructural project. He said that he is aware that most people think of pavements and road works when thinking of infrastructure but MUZA is another project that could be described as such. Both Owen Bonnici and Joseph Muscat thanked the number of individuals who participated in all the work to develop the musuem from an idea into a reality.
