Palace Armoury - Review
The Palace Armory in Valletta might be one of the most fascinating things that you will ever see. For one it happens to be one of the world’s biggest collections of arms, armor and all things related to the ancient wars.
From swords to artillery and from helmets to full bodied armors you will find a stunning collection of lavishly decorated, embellished weapons from all over the world. However, these objects of destruction are as lethal as they are pretty so you should tread carefully. The ingenuity and design of some of the weapons is astonishing while others surprise with their beauty. This rare collection is certainly worth seeing and an interesting take on history.

Palace Armoury, Valletta Reviews
As someone who loves history, the palace armoury was an absolute pleasure to visit, as one of the largest current armouries available in Europe. It hold armour and weapons from the siege of Malta with the Knights of Saint John, right up until a couple centuries ago. Although the ticket is a bit expensive, for anyone who loves historical armours or weapons, I’d definitely recommend it. However if you aren’t too much into the history, you might not find it worth it.
Interesting but small. The entrance is not from the main square but from the side.
Very short exhibition, but the pieces are very interesting, but only to people who are interested in warfare, armour, weapons and war
The Knights gave there life to defend Malta and Christianity, AQUARIUS IS THE TROJAN HORSE
A huge variety of armour and weapons. Detailed audio guide in several major languages provides description of every artifact. Armour collection is displayed in chronological order, so we can see how the plate armour and helms evolved through ages. The museum has also a great collection of polearms, swords and early firearms. Among the collection there are a few unique artifacts: heavy shot-proof helm and a hybrid of a sabre and a gun - definitely worth seeing.
