A great and interesting overview of Malta and its history, done in the by now familiar audiovisual format. Do comnbine it with the tour of the Great Hospital nearby.

By starting here, you'll see the history of Malta and you'll appreciate so much more about what you see. Your pass includes the movie as well as a pass to The Knight's Hospitallers. It's helpful in understanding the complex history of Malta. This is like reading the first book in a series. It gives you the background. It wasn't my... More

Our taxi from the airport recommended that we should visit the Malta Experience before we did anything else to give an overview of the islands and their history. We did and he was right. It was extremely well presented and ensured we knew the other sights we would visit during our stay

We were visiting and suddenly stuck in a rainstorm. So, we ducked into the Malta Experience to weather it out. It was great! Really informative, and well presented. I won't normally try tourist spots, but think it's well done. Plus...we got a tour if Valleta! Excellent.

Learnt a lot about Malta and it's people watching this wonderful film. They have been invaded by so many countries and yet have maintained their language and culture. They also showed courage and resilience more than most countries during WWII. It was privilege to get to visit this unbelievable island!

Around 45mins long. the narrator takes your through the turbulent history Malta has gone through. from BC to WW2. The Maltese should be so proud of their people! It also made me proud to be British when the british entered the story

A multi language visual tour of Malta's history. Headphones provide many languages ( about 20, I think). Very well done. It is popular - we were in March and the theatre was full, so in the summer you might have to book ahead.

A fascinating and informative history of Malta, presented very well on screen in a comfortable cinema style room. Coupled with a tour of the (Knights of St John) Infirmary across the road it is well worth 15 euro. It was a great way to find out what Malta has to offer.

Comfortable seats in a very nice theatre and an excellent presentation for any newcomer to Malta starting their visit. Informative and gives a good indication of what to look out for on the island(s). We included the visit to the Sacra Infermeria (Knights' hospital) just across the road which also proved very interesting but, i would suggest, not for the... More
