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.

The whole Grandmaster's Palace is a highly recommended destination in Valletta. Even the rooms and corridors of the building are wonderful. The armoury contains many full plate mails. Some of them were surprisingly big; it was a bit suspicious as people in the past were much smaller than nowadays. I have seen knight's plate even in my size (I am 189 cm). Very nice assortment of weapons and armour.
I love the armoury. I went as a young boy back when the Malta busses were all yellow and like a fairground ride, the wooden boats filled the harbour with stripes of colour.....the armoury was, and is like seeing Malta's historic battles and has hands on exhibits. My son loved the armour and the cannons. Go and see this!
Fantastic place, got in on a pass. Was brilliant, lovely views and jammed with loads of information!
Very impressive collection of armour and firearms 😎😀
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.
