National War Museum, Valletta Reviews

  • The museum is very well kept and looks professional. Sadly section 7 was under maintenance when I paid a visit, but the rest of the museum was great. Furthermore, the exhibits had a clear description and detailed information. The interactive parts and the regular shows all around the museum give a great view into Malta's rich history and of course the history of the fort itself. Because of the amount of walking and the content of the exhibit this is more for those interested in history.

  • This museum is a live testimony of Malta's rich historical past. It is housed in Fort St. Elmo and there's so much to see that one has to spare a couple of hours to be able to understand and appreciate Malta's involvement in the major events which shook Europe and the world, be it the Great Siege of 1565 and the two World Wars. Nothing has been spared to present a very detailed presentation with all sorts of exhibits from the different era throughout Malta's rich historical past housed in different sections. Well done to all especially to Heritage Malta for the dedication shown.

  • Amazing exhibit in a fort on the tip of Valletta. One of the exhibition halls was shut n my good lady wife was hurrying me through the rest but a great series of artifacts, info and timelimes. The view down onto the barracks looks ace - I hope they also open them up one day!

  • Very interesting but aimed more for a history buff than your general tourist. Bit pricey at €10 each. Very impressive views. Poorly signposted to the main part of the tour, almost missed it as there was work being done on the enterance. Wouldn’t really advise taking kids as it’s lots of information and not overly interactive.

  • Very detailed for 1564 siege, the Napoleonic period and the second world war; very interesting with amazing views. Took us 2.5 hours to get round, but reading lots. A few audio-visual bits and lots of displays.
