We didn't actually pay to go inside this exhibit, as I had previously visited the war rooms under Dover Castle and these appeared to be very similar, however by walking along the tunnel which gives access to the museum itself it is possible to see most of the rooms, and in any case experience the claustrophobia from being in such...

Excellent tour guide—friendly, passionate, and extremely knowledgable—showed us around the site with a small group of visitors. It was a beautiful tour, about 1.5 hours long with a short film. Access to the site is a bit confusing, especially if you're the last tour of the day as we were on a Saturday. In this case the "front" door gets... More

Brilliant second visit to this hidden gem. Its been upgraded since my last visit with audio guides now added and an improved reception areas. If anything it was even better than I remembered. The guides spoke with both a deep knowledge and passion and one felt as though you were stepping back in time. The only minus was that the... More

The most important thing are the workers there - talking to you, making jokes, telling you the story. We had a little tour from a guy working there, because he just wanted us to know few things. We also had a watermelon - the lady at the desk asked us if she could keep it in the fridge - 'cos... More

It was very interesting to see the plight of the maltese people and where the movements of the army was controlled from. I found it particularly interesting as my maltese grandad fought defending malta in the Second World War.it was interesting and very haunting, considering you were walking where other important people had in the past. Well worth a visit... More
