Visited on our last day. The guy running it was pleasant and allowed photos. he was a relative of the Air Raid shelter commander. Its nice and cool down the tunnels. Its a must do for anyone in the area! Some of the dummies freaked us out though! A pleasure to have seen.

Now this is a place to visit, totally gobsmacked with the tunnels built during World War 2 as air raid shelters. The old boy collecting money is a very nice chap too.

The man at the entrance was friendly and told us some great WW2 stories as well as the history of Malta. The shelter is easily accessible and is brilliant to walk round. You get a real sense of how it must of been like for the Maltese people during WW2

For €2.40 each it was well worth the entrance fee. It was amazing to think & see what the people of Mellieha built to protect themselves in during WWII.

Brilliant half an hour or so wandering through the tunnels and letting our imaginations wonder what it would have been like 60 years ago. Fascinating and only 2.50 euros. Also very cool if it's a scorching Malta day!
