National War Museum, Valletta Reviews

  • For any history buffs I would definitely recommend Fort St. Elmo. It has numerous sections dedicated to periods of Malta’s history with a plethora of archeological evidence. You’ll also find accompanying videos and audio guides in each section. There are also many scenic views from the fort. However if you’re not too interested in the history, the 10 euro price could be considerably steep for you.

  • Nice interactive history of Malta within St. Elmo fort. Worth visiting. Don't expect something spectacular and big but for Malta size it's good. Entrance €10 per person.

  • A brilliant display of Malta's military history... amazing location, great views, lovely relics and stories of this marvelous place.... highly recommended.

  • It was interesting. Section 7 was closed for renovations and around 80% of the whole fort is closed for staff only. I think it would be really cool if you could explore all of it. Cost of 10€ seems good since you are in it for a while then.

  • Beautiful views of the city and a small but interesting collection of historical artefacts that taught the history of the island from what seemed to be a pretty fair point of view. There is a lift and ramps for people with wheelchairs.
