Avoid buying food and drinks for the coffee and bar room leading into the experience. Two beers and two basic sandwiches costed us € 21.45. Shame on the local Tourism Authority who lets tourists being changed such high prices.

Excellent film in your own language. Malta has an incredible history and you can see how every step has left its mark on this lovely island. The film was very well done and suitable for all ages. The time went quickly - short enough to keep your interest, long enough to pack in lots of information.

I leard a lot going to the Malta Experience, I find Malta's history very fascinating and interesting. The movie was 1 hour long and were well made and interesting throughout! But they should invest in new headphones and chairs. Not much space for your legs unfortunately. Overall, a cool entrance and a few eye catching souveries.

Nice cut through the history and I really liked "the show" at the end where video guide you through few rooms. I was especially interested in about WW2 and that section was not so big as I thought.

I spent months in Malta avoiding this show, which I always considered merely an attraction for tourist. I could have not been more wrong! The venue is mysterious and smells of history, and the projection really teaches you things about Malta and the Maltese who are hard to find out, unless you want to dive into Maltese History books.

My wife and I went to see the hospital of the Knights Templar to compare it with its predecessor in Rhodes. We were very impressed with the hospital and the guided tour but were not aware that the Malta Experience was also part of the tour. We were led through to a cinema and provided with headphones which you could... More

This is the best way to find out the history of malta in such a short period of time! Being a regular in malta (i always have to take guests) i have probably seen the show about 15+ times and i still learn something extra every time! However it is starting to look very dated and could definitely use a... More

With this experience you learn about the history of Malta very quick! The seats are fine and you can choose a variety of different languages to hear through the headphones. My headphones were a bit low in sound but i think this was only the one i had because the one that my girlfriend had on was perfectly fine. After... More

This might be advertised as the Malta Experience but the real experience was the old Yellow Buses, there were all sorts of makes, shapes and sizes bouncing along the old Malta Roads with pot holes. Its a great pity they have gone, otherwise the real experience would still be there
