  • Very nice museum, it is worth to visit. You will go through the history of Malta, including the arrival of the knights, the development of the fortifications, the Great Siege in 1565, further fortifications, Napoleon's era, WWII and liberation from the British. Each building has its own exhibition related to one era. It worth to sit down and watch/listen about the journey of the fleet which brought supply and reinforcement in WWII. There is a nice view from the fortress. Many movies were filmed here, including the Z War from Brad Pitt.

  • It's well done and put together but many things of just reading. You will learn an extensive amount of history. it's not air conditioned but it's out of the sun. I enjoyed the video clips and places to sit. The only rest room is in building 2. It's at the bottom of a large hill soooo be prepared for the walk back up.

  • I cannot fault this amazing museum in an amazing location. There is a complete and detailed history from Romans to modern day. At £10 for a ticket, it is well worth half a day of your time

  • very interesting museum to Malta's history and a must if you are visiting. Is not super busy as some of the spots did seem in Valetta so plenty of room to walk around at your own time. Amazing views also from here as you walk outside in parts of it. Great and reasonable for the cost too

  • Very sparse as far as exhibits goes, the historical element is well accomplished but visitors will have to read it all. The place was tranquil and very well kept but I felt it was missing something to really engage the visitor. All that history, turmoil and adventure was lost. Not one to take small children as there just isn’t anything to engage them.
