Excellent for the price! A lovely friendly gentleman at the entrance and such an eerie feeling when you're down there! Really makes you think about how people must have felt during that terrible time. wax works/dummies depicting life in the shelter were a bit tired but we really didn't mind!

An excellent view of what it was like to shelter down there during the war. The sound effects were good and the tunnels were very long! Some good info on the walls but sadly some is unreadable due to the damp destroying the ink. Nice man with his lovely dog at the entrance collecting a very reasonable entrance fee of... More

Visited the air raid shelter with our 9 and 10 year old sons. I was amazed by the size of tunnel. There were interesting facts to read along the way and both the boys found it intriguing.

Situated close to the church in Mellieha the air rad shelters are well worth a visit to gain an understanding of the hardships and stoic perseverance of the Maltese people during WW2. The shelters are run by a charming local gentleman who was 8 years old when he took shelter from the Axis air raids in these very air raid... More
