Even the entrance below the fortress walls is dramatic as you enter the impenetrable war rooms. It began with short, stirring video in a cinema that charted a day in the life of a convoy heading across the med to Malta. From then on our guide ably escorted us through the restored war rooms that showed how Eisenhower, Patten, Montgomery and co plotted to defend Malta and then invade Sicily. The maps and apparatus were oddly beautiful considering they were mechanisms of war and they really brought the business of the operation to life. Our guide was - by his own admission - new to the role and could sharpen his act a bit but was enthusiastic and had some stories, being an ex-military man himself. The lady at the box office was a little pushy with trying to sell DVD's (she succeeded though) and whatnot but as she said, they need the money or the place will close. Well worth a visit, not expensive and pretty unique.
