You have to be very creative in this building, to find what you are looking for. We ended up walking along several dimly lit corridoors,passing lost people with bewildered looks on their faces, up and down a lift, until we found the exhibition. There wasnt a lot to the exhibition, and a lot of the other spaces seemed to be... More

Interesting building - however there was little on when we visited and no one around to ask. Does have a WC which is quite a rarety in Valletta. Would be a nice place for a cafe?

Have been there a couple of times for performances but wanted to spend more time just looking around. Two exhibitions one interesting and the other very thought provoking. Also stopped for a very good lunch, pasta and burger. Building was designed to keep people out but there is a lift and ramps

Already the front of the centre, as you go inside is very inspiring. Inside, the interiour is modern, clean. I enjoyed the most the exhibition of childrens' art, T-shirts, as they used colours it was amazing.

This gallery is often full of unique artistic concepts with unforgettable exhibits. For example a full size twisted British phone box. Local artists display their works.

This is a hard building to find and when you find it you wonder how you never noticed it before. The building is huge as part of the fortifications of Valletta. The coffee shop/café housed in the fort is often missed by visitors to Valletta but serves great tea/ cakes/snacks. The staff are pleasant and prices are reasonable for Valletta... More

It takes a little effort to find it, oddly enough. It is an immense fortification, but the doorway is a nondescript little entrance. There is a second doorway that is even more nondescript. However, once you are inside, the place is full of fascinating things--art exhibitions, theatre space, a restaurant, perhaps a cinema festival or music performances. The building itself... More

The building alone is a work of art but had been to see some interesting exhibit and shows. Looking forward to going more this summer.. a must for a Valletta experienced.

It is easy to overlook St James Cavalier. The centre for creativity is an attractive venue for the arts: movies, concerts as well as exhibits. Always worthwhile. There are two other treats. Without an exhibition, the building itself is a valuable piece of architecture. Heavy military fortifications of the 16th century given modern application. The internal structural architecture and marvelous... More

We spent an hour exploring the building and the different exhibitions. It was not totally obvious where things were and how you found your way, but with a bit of exploring you can find your way around
