In reality this attraction is a 45 minute film about the history of Malta plus the obligatory gift shop and cafe. You could save yourself the time and money by googling some video on Maltas history You Tube. The tickets we bought were combined with the a walk around the top part of the Knights hospitallier to show Europes longest... More

Have had the opportunity to see this show a few times, personally and also with clients, as i never get enough of watching it. As Maltese, I feel that this show depicts what the country has been through to get to what we are now, in a mix of visuals oand narration. Highly recommended to any one who has not... More

We paid 36 euros for three persons, my little one had a free ticket, thank God. I made a confusion, or not with the Knights Hospitaller, wich was a nice museum with human copy manequins representations, showing how was treated the knights, how was the medicine study on dead bodies at that times of Malta. Instead, It took one hour... More

My experience was sitting in cinema watching a history film which was more expensive that an opening night at a west end cinema. Yes the longest hospital ward in Europe of its time was very interesting, but you could look at it for free any way. Very disappointing, goggle a film on Mata before you go and save your money....

Everywhere has them - always over-priced, always accompanied by commentary verging between portentous and pompous. But we still go, and of its type this one is quite interesting. (And the trip to the Order of St John's hospital next door is interesting)

In spite of several visits to Malta over the years we has never been to this attraction until this year, and it proved to be very worthwhile. Included in the price of the ticket is a tour round the Knights Hospital and we had a most informative guide who made the whole visit most enjoyable. There is a very good... More

This put all the sights we saw into context - good value for money, especially if you do the combined visit to the hospital as well.
