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

After having been to quite a few of this type of "walk through" sites I must say this was a little disappointing. The sound was not of the highest quality & it was starting to look a little jaded. The historical facts were fine but it could do with a review from the operators

We went to this thinking that it would be very good given that we as a family are interested in history and the knights. We were disappointed that exhibits were of poor quality and quite shabby. The commentary was also not in sync and display lights turned off and left us in the dark whilst we were still listening to... More

As I'm much interested in European history, "The Great Siege of Malta" exhibition was on my list. I came there several times just to find the doors closed. I tried to find out anything about this attraction from the locals, and on the third try (from some nice people from the National Library) I learned that it had been finally... More

I would completely recommend, even insist that all visitors go here to fully get the flavour of Maltas immense past. Yes it can be a bit 'flimsy' in some things but when visited with the War Museum and Malta experience the whole experience is deeply moving, Try and organise a morning / evening of the mail history trips to get...

A great way to learn some of Malta's history and very exciting for the children. It is located under the ground so it is also good for taking a break from the hot sun.
