MSc Sustainable Heritage students visit Gozo in Malta for Module 2

17 December 2015


The MSc Sustainable Heritage academic staff and students together with the UCL ISH Director recently visited Gozo, Malta for Module 2, working with Heritage Malta to carry out studies that will contribute to the design of  the first Gozo National Museum.

Over two weeks the students studied environmental data collected within existing museums and the building earmarked for the new Gozo National Museum, performed condition assessments of different museum collections, risk assessment, building mapping and pest management exercises.  

The students presented their findings to the Malta Government Minister for Gozo, and the Board and staff of Heritage Malta on 3rd December.

It was a fantastic learning experience for all concerned.  The students’ presentation was an amazing achievement and we have made a contribution to telling the fascinating story of Gozo!
