This was an excellent experience. The tour guide in the hospital was a true professional - the information was presented in a very interesting, even humorous way and her emotional and personal connection to valletta was visible and touching. As regards to the movie, it was extremely informative and enjoyable. 10/10

This is a two part experience. The first is a 45 min film show telling the history of Malta from day -1 to date. All well and good but everywhere tells the same tale and, sorry but I nearly nodded off, well it was hot, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it! Part two is a tour of the... More

Loved it! It is a must do to appreciate the role this country has played in the world. The guide on this tour is the most knowledgable and communicative I have ever experienced. The Theatre is also very accommodating.

The Malta experience is a 45 minute educational video presented in many different languages which are delivered via headphones. It covers the history of Malta and was informative and concise enough to keep the attention of most people. I found the video a little dated though and a bit like a photo presentation - a bit more interesting video footage... More

If you have just arrived in Valetta, Malta, this is a great start to what Malta is about. A most informative video is presented with your choice of language , followed up with a tour of the reconstructed14th Century hospital. All the rest of your touring will be in perspective once you are aware of the history of this interesting... More

The superb film about the history of Malta puts everything else about a visit here in context, so best to do at the beginning of a trip here. There was just the right amount of information to keep a huge and diverse audience interested, and the availability of audio in so many languages makes is a bonus The trip to... More

I went with my wife in Valletta. After visiting St John's Cathedral, we took an electric cab for 2 euro and within five minutes we were at The Malta Experience. It opens on a daily basis from 11:00 till 16:00 on the hour. The presentation was fantastic and in 45 minutes it described in detail the full history of Malta.... More

I would recommend to do this before any other activity. A good film - not boring and in 21 languages - explains the history of Malta. The cinema can house few hundred people. Then, you can visit the infirmary which was used over centuries. A good knowledgeable guide was key there to let us understand how this place was key... More
