The war rooms are an essential piece of Maltese history. The guides are welcoming, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The war rooms are as they were at the end of the war and will eventually ancompass more information. Well worth a visit.

Make sure you take the tour with the guide as this is optional (no extra cost). Takes about... More

We visited the Lascaris War Rooms last week and afterwards felt moved and honoured to have been able to experience such a good attraction. Our guide was so good and knowledgeable and he had a very good sense of humour too. The experience of the Maltese people who so bravely defended the Island in WW2 was bought to life by... More

We paid 10 euros each to be given a guided tour of the war rooms. The underground tunnels and chambers house operation, administrative and code rooms. After a while my husband and I broke away from the guided tour and explored on our own at our own pace. Very educational and worth a visit to learn more about Britain's war... More

The Lascaris War Rooms were dug out underground by British miners and entered by a long tunnel, not easy to find but totally suitable for original purpose. Staff were exceptionally welcoming and knowledgeable, and totally committed to the further development of the museum. For the first time ever we actually received the photo of me in the hard hat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the war rooms. The must here is to have the Curator/guide take you through the involvement of Malta during WW11, in particular the operations of the war rooms, his knowledge & description of events makes for fascinating & educational listening. I would assume this is a must see for every school student in Malta.
