Very informative and well presented film about the history of Malta, which gives a good insight into the people and culture of the country. Ticket a little expensive if you only use it for the film, but becomes good value when combined with the guided tour of the Knight's Hospital opposite the theatre,

This film showing the history of Malta and the many invasions is well worth seeing to understand what Malta has been through. The theatre is comfortable and the commentary very understandable. The brief walk through the old hospital brings it all to life. Malta is an amazing island with so much history.

I expected it to be better. 5D was only so so and it was all too short. I expected it to be more detailed.

I thought this was great for anyone who is not a history buff and just wants an overview of the islands vast culture. While the audio was loud it was interesting and gave a good account of the highlights. The infirmary tour after was a nice add on and worth the extra 5 euros. Our tour guide was very good... More

Girl on reception was more interested in using her mobile phone than selling tickets, had a brusque manner, and on second attempt to purchase 2 tickets, did not give the "option" of the film presentation only, but wanted to charge us for both film + infirmary tour at 15 euros each. Only when querying this increased price, did we get... More

It was very beautiful and caputuring, always coming with new interesting facts . The informative show filled with history made me look at the island... More

The first part of The Malta Experience is a film which you wear headphones for so that you can listen in your own language. This was interesting up to a point, then it got a bit boring to be honest. The next part was a guided visit to La Sacra Infermeria which was once a hospital and is now a... More

The audio visual 'Malta Experience' is good and full of interesting information, the tour of the old hospital after is a lot more exciting. We had an amazing guide called 'Anna' who was really engaging with everyone. 100% not to be missed!
