The theme for 2012 was Preserving Our Cultural Heritage: Works in Progress… 

A number of historical properties were opened for public enjoyment for free or at reduced rates.  Local heritage NGOs Din l-Art Ħelwa, Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna, Għaqda Bajja San  Tumas and Wirt Għawdex, as well as the Local Councils of Marsaskala and Tarxien participated in the events.  Heritage Malta also opened the doors of their Head Office in Bighi – the former naval hospital, during which visitors were given a tour of Heritage Malt’s conservation labs and an insight into the conservation of paints, textiles, books and paper, metals and objects.  Educational activities including guided tours for adults and children were also ongoing.
