Puts a confusing island history into perspective

Go here first. The audio/visual presentation help put order and give detail to Malta's colorful history. The auditorium is very spacious and comfortable.

This place is a must do for any tourist. Great start to my business trip. Well put together video. The highlight was the trip to the infirmary across the road. Good value to get the combo ticket. Very adequate cafe onsite

This is shown in a small cinema with audio headphones in different languages. It gives a really good overview of the history of Malta. It lasts for about 45 minutes. It can be found near to the end of Republica street. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the bus station. There is quite a steep hill to go... More

We didn't bother to use all our tickets for this experience. The film was over long, the 'museum ' experience was like a madame tusards bad copy and again did not add anything to my knowledge . Stay outside and enjoy the real experience

My teen's did not read up on Malta before the trip so for them to understand the quick history of Malta, and see what the islands offer in a 3D format was well worth it. Do this on day one of your trip. The fee was small.

About as far from the high tech 5D experience as you can get but even our youngest (seven year old) was fascinated by the story of Malta and took in the information and relayed it back to Dad later. Nearly reduced me to tears with the WW2 footage. We all thought it worth while. We didn't have time for the... More

Was not impressed at all. We were cheated on with the price and were not given all the options. If I had to go again I go somewhere else to use my time and money better.

The Malta Experience film show and tour are an interesting intrroduction to Malta's culture and extraordinary military history, and very professionally presented too. However, you'd be forgiven for finding the procedure a bit disorganised and confusing. You buy tickets from a table outside the café overlooking the harbour, but the cinema is across the road in a building housing an... More
