This was a perfect presentation of the siege of Malta. They made it with good wax figures and objects from that time and of course a really good video projected on a big screen. I would recommend this for who wants to have a "out of the box" experience.

This cost 6 euros entrance. But it is an amazing cathedral and the decoration inside takes your breathe away and is very overwhelming. But somèwhere you consider visiting. We enjoyed it very much.

For the history buff, or anyone interested is knights and their armor, this is the place to visit in Valletta, Malta. The cost is reasonable and the displays are well done. Compliments to the curator!

It is hard to miss the legacy of the Knights in Malta. They gave the Islands one its best-known faces to the world, the eight-pointed Maltese Cross.Across the Maltese Islands, you'll find more evidence of their stay in their military engineering and architectural feats: forts, bastions, watch towers, acquaducts, churches and cathedrals

I think this place has stopped operating... I asked around but few people knew about this place. Now that I looked online the website has gone too.

Wonderful small fortified town, curving streets, well preserved houses and just full of atmosphere and interest. Knights of Malta film show very informative and when seeing the museum, soundtrack is by Roger Moore, unexpected. Well worth it
