An interesting 45 minute film on the history of Malta. The film is dubbed in many languages. Everyone has a pair of headphones and the possibility of choosing his language.

We had read about this before we went. It did not disappoint. If you went to know about Malta's history you need to go to this. It was so good having ear phones to hear the commentary in our own language.

An interesting 45 minute history of Malta, obviously designed for those with limited prior knowledge; but well done. Only downside was having arrived just after 11 o'clock we had to wait nearly an hour for the next screening but then very irritating for the 12 o'clock screening to be delayed for over 15 minutes whilst members of coach parties were...

As a novice to Malta, and indeed to anywhere we visit for the first time, it is always good to learn how the culture, people and traditions have evolved over time. It is easy to be complacent about this, and equally easy to take the areas we visit so much for granted. So, obediently, we visited the Malta Experience to... More

In reality this attraction is a 45 minute film about the history of Malta plus the obligatory gift shop and cafe. You could save yourself the time and money by googling some video on Maltas history You Tube. The tickets we bought were combined with the a walk around the top part of the Knights hospitallier to show Europes longest... More

Have had the opportunity to see this show a few times, personally and also with clients, as i never get enough of watching it. As Maltese, I feel that this show depicts what the country has been through to get to what we are now, in a mix of visuals oand narration. Highly recommended to any one who has not... More

We paid 36 euros for three persons, my little one had a free ticket, thank God. I made a confusion, or not with the Knights Hospitaller, wich was a nice museum with human copy manequins representations, showing how was treated the knights, how was the medicine study on dead bodies at that times of Malta. Instead, It took one hour... More

My experience was sitting in cinema watching a history film which was more expensive that an opening night at a west end cinema. Yes the longest hospital ward in Europe of its time was very interesting, but you could look at it for free any way. Very disappointing, goggle a film on Mata before you go and save your money....
