This fantastic multi media presentation comes in every language under the sun (well almost). You sit in a large auditorium and each seat has headphones with a dial to select your language. The presentation lasts for 45 minutes and covers the entire human history of...More

As this was our first visit to Malta, it was recommended that we first visit the 45-minute audiovisual presentation "The Malta Experience" before visiting the various historical sights, so as to better understand the history of the country. And I am so glad that we...More

Don't visit this. Just don't. You pay 16€ to watch a 45' documentary about Malta and make a 20' tour on the Knight's hospital. Which is empty. The only good thing there is the gift shop, go only if you want to buy souvenirs. Really...More

I really enjoyed our visit here. The history is very hard to compact all together and The Malta Experience was great to give you the overview. The visit to the Knights of St John Hospital was fantastic, again such incredible history.

Good value but the admission prices are only displayed in the gift shop and nowhere else! Very interesting presentations with headphones to use which can be tweaked to most languages. The cafe is good value and the staff most helpful - go!

As someone who knew nothing about Malta's history this was a very useful film to watch. It certainly made me appreciate what the people had gone through and how well everything has been restored.

If you are looking for wide sandy beaches then you will be disappointed. Most are small and stoney or off of rocks but the water is crystal clear. Some hotels have small 'artificial' sandy beaches by which I mean they have... More

Fort Rinella and Valletta (10 Replies)
Hi Malta experts, I'm coming to Malta for 10 days in August. I've been told on here about the big gun at Fort Rinella, and I think my kids would love to see it. Is it possible to see the Malta Experience or Living Hisory show, then walk along the Valletta waterfront and still get to the Upper Barracka Gardens in time for the transport to the Fort? Is there somewhere to eat near the fort, or do you sign up at noon then return later for the transport? Hoping someone can help me,...More

there are no restaurants near the fort as it is quite remote. however there is a small snack bar in the fort for a cup of tea / coffee, glass of coke etc and a cake . Why not buy some pastizzi ( cheese cakes or pea cakes ) and take them with you ? If you speak to one of the soldiers at the noon gun firing at the Barrakka gardens they will arrange your ride to fort Rinella which leaves soon after the firing of the gun. Your kids will really enjoy visiting the fort ---it`s one of...More

Took the bus into Valletta and had a walk round the cathedral, it's so pretty and serene. Then did lunch at caffe cordina in the square, think it's called that! . The youngsters took a horse and carriage ride , I bartered the driver down.. Had to chose the right horse though...son being a polo player, he knows his horses..and a few looked rather old and in need of some TLC... When they came back we wandered down to the war museum and then to the Malta experience show... Nice to be in AC place...More

Glad to hear you are having fun again in malta. A few things have changed eh ? Every time we go something has changed. Sometimes good sometimes bad and just lately sometimes sad but we still wouldn't go anywhere else. Keep up the trip reports.
