I visited the Malta Experience many years ago with my parents and so I was delighted to return a few weeks ago. I would strongly recommend a visit to the Malta Experience for any person wishing to get an exciting and informative glimpse into Malta's long and chequered past. The video itself is a masterpiece and the facilities provided on... More

20-30 min. film that is pretty informative about the history of Malta, so it is a good first thing to do before venturing out to see the sights. If you already know the history of the island well, not worth doing. Also pretty expensive for what it is - 18 EUR for 2 adults & 2 children.

I visited the Malta Experience with my parents (60's), myself and my 2 children (7 & 10). It was absolutely fabulous. It was wonderful to do this at the start of our holiday as it gave us a great background on the fascinating history of Malta. It was well worth the money and even the souvenirs weren't badly priced. As... More

We asked for the Malta Experience and was taken aback by the cost as it was a lot more than I had researched. I was expecting it to be about 9 Euros but we paid 15 euros each, We enjoyed this film, we had headsets where you select the language of your choice, just long enough film. We went from... More

We only visited the cafe, the cooked food was a good price and good quality, however the drinks and ice creams were vastly overpriced. The cafe lacked atmosphere, and while all the doors had signs to request that people closed them to allow the air conditioning to work, staff were frequently ignoring these, resulting in the cafe being quite hot.

Multi-lingual AV show which leads you through Malta's turbulent history. If you don't know anything about it, this will add dimension and understanding to the architecture around you. Admission includes a visit to the original Knights hospital opposite where you may learn of a surprising use for honey...

I would begin my touring at this location, because so much of where you will visit is reviewed in this video presentation.
