VINTAGE CHRISTMAS CARDS EXHIBITION

Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 3:51pm

The Gozo Philatelic Society has set up a new exhibit in their showcase on level -1 at Il-Ħaġar. Within the “Chistmas in Gozo” initiative, a selection of vintage Christmas Cards are on display – and will remain till January. Some are impressively ornate, obviously involving substantial effort. This Museum will be hosting numerous occasions suitable for this period, including mini concerts and pasturi.
