National War Museum, Valletta Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Fantastic collection through hundreds of years of history. Very well presented along with excellent and informative videos. It's also amazing value for money too. A++

  • Took two young kids to visit the museum and they enjoyed it as well. However, to take in everything, you need to plan a good couple of hours. Definitely worth a visit and look out for the George Cross awarded to Malta during the second world war. It's in a small exhibit and many people just walked past it.

  • The price for the ticket was 10€. Definitely worth it. The museum is very extensive and will take some time to go through everything. It tells the history of Malta in a very engaging way, following the various historical periods the island went through.
