Opening Hours


Located in an area of Malta which is rich in history, Bighi Library, which is now being managed by Heritage Malta staff, is situated within the Heritage Malta main offices in Kalkara. This houses a specialised collection of books and journals on conservation and restoration. Furthermore, a Melitensia and History of Art section is also available. Since the Library is mainly focused on one discipline, it caters for students and scholars who are studying or researching in the fields of conservation and restoration. 

For any book or publication and/or assistance from Bighi Library, please contact Mr George Agius, Heritage Malta Library by phone on +356 2395 4318.
