Bee Buzzz

Esplora, Malta’s Interactive Science Centre, is celebrating World Bee Day on Saturday with an event designed to educate the public about the vital role that bees play in our ecosystem and the importance of beekeeping.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet members from the organisation Għaqda tat-Trobbija tan-Naħal u l-Għasel Malti, and other experts in the field of beekeeping.

Participants will learn about the basics of beekeeping, the different types of bees, their life cycle and the importance of bee conservation. There will be a complimentary honey tasting session on the day of the event. Attendees will also have the option to purchase honey, and those interested in honeycombs will be able to place an order.

In addition to the educational aspect, the event will also offer a range of enjoyable activities for the whole family to enjoy. Children can look forward to a bouncy castle, a popcorn machine and face painting.

The Passage of Time area, located within the main exhibition building, will be beautifully transformed to mark this special day, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all our visitors. Children will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with Buzz the Bee.

All the captured moments will be shared on Esplora’s Facebook page, enabling participants to tag themselves and share their cherished photos. The photo that garners the most likes will be rewarded with a complimentary family entrance ticket to Esplora, accompanied by an adorable bee soft toy.

The event will be held between 10am and 5pm. In the event of bad weather, the activities planned on the outside may be subject to change or relocated indoors for the safety and comfort of our visitors.
