  • The Fort St. Elmo is where the National War Museum is. If you have half a day free don't miss this museum. Here you will find exhibits from 3000 B.D. until now. The outside views are breathtaking!!! The best sites to make pictures with a view.

  • Brilliant museum. Lots to see hear and read, both of the island's more ancient history and more modern history too. Can be difficult to get around to all the places on the site of you have mobility issues or using a pram etc. There are lifts on site to most of the areas, but there are some that would be difficult to get to or are not accessible.

  • Some great animations. Good views of the harbour. Contains so nice historic artifacts. We did this as part of the heritage ticket

  • The Fort itself is such an impressive structure, a behemoth full of history and tales. And the tour is doing such a good job at telling those tales, just amazing!

  • Took my son here it was very interesting for both of us. A stunning place. Lots of history and very interesting architecture. It's amazing to see what this little island has been through.
