As with all principal sites managed by Din l-Art Helwa, TlA will cater for various visitors including Maltese residents and tourists. The main area will consist of a an interactive technology based facility which will enable visitors access areas of interest that have been categorised under specific themes, such as,
- Din l-Art Helwa managed sites
- Coastal Towers in Malta and Gozo and Comino
- The coastal environment in Malta
- Marine species of the Mediterranean
The site will be looked after by a team of dedicated volunteers who will be able to guide visitors around the site and also to provide information about the surrounding area.
Access to the facilities will be subject to a very reasonable fee, which goes towards the upkeep of the site and the facilities. All Din l-Art Helwa staff are volunteers.
Interactive room and the video room. The interactive room is situated in the old Block-house, i.e. the part of the fortification that housed the materials related to the artillery position built circa 1715. This room will contain several interactive screens and tablets, allowing visitors of all ages to choose what information they would like to access. The video room in the ground floor of the original 1658 tower will enable grouped audiences to watch looped videos relating to the tower, the environs and other historical and cultural topics.
The ex-guard room is located partly in the artillery ditch surrounding the tower. Whist originally built by the British forces to act as a guard post to the area, this 50 square meter room will be used as a general purpose room for lectures or similar activities.
Dormitory and related facilities. The site will provide sleeping accommodation for up to 16 people, split into 2 separate (male/female) areas on different floors. There are also allocated ablution facilities split by male/female areas on all 3 floors of the site. A kitchenette/informal dining area is also available.
Children friendly interactive modules. Part of the interactive modules in the main room (Block house) has been designed with children in mind, so the display is less formal, whilst retaining and presenting factual and informative topics.
Snack shop and relaxation area. Visitors will be able to purchase pre-packed light food and drinks from the snack shop on the ground floor at the back of the site. Tables and chairs will allow visitors to relax whist appreciating the beauty of the site.
