Very well put together, especially the interactive show at the end. An experience that takes you through the initial concept of fort elmo through to the different usage through the ages. An enjoyable day out and we'll worth a visit.

If you don't know about the history of Malta you should visit this at the start of your trip. It will put evrything else on ther island into context and make your trip more meaningful. You should also visit the hospital as well. Very interesting.

Do go to this 1 hr Experience on arriving in Malta, it is a really fascinating and well presented chronological history of Malta from Pre-historic to current times. You will get so much more out of the rest of the trip to Malta if you see this attraction first, and it may also shape what you want to see after... More

If you just go to Malta for the sunshine, the sea, the food and the nightlife this may not be for you. I would go anyway, as this 45-minute show gives a good explanation of Malta's historical importance and also places many of the sights that you see around the country in perspective. Although well made, the show is informative... More

Rather long-winded but interesting. There is much history in Malta but we heard the same thing so many times and it became rather monotonous. However, I am now an expert on the siege!

The Malta Experience is a well designed audio-visual experience which takes the visitor through the history of Malta from the earliest invaders to the present, over a period of about 7000 years. The show takes about 45 minutes and is a cool air conditioned experience out of the heat. I would recommend that the visitor starts their exploration of Valletta... More
