Really just a film, with the audio available in several languages. I noticed in the credits that they used Derek Jacobi and another actor whose name I recognised but can't remember for the English version - quality! Whereas other attractions make much of the megalithic history and of course the Knights of St John, this film made me aware of... More

The Maltese people have been smashed around for centuries and this interesting film captures it. €15 per adult includes to the tour of the infirmary which is also full of facts, especially the signing of the End of the Cold War. Great English speaking guide with lifts available. The toilets are clean just smell rather sour.

Great way to start your trip in Malta. Wonderful film, available in multiple languages, providing an overview of the history of this fascinating island. 15 euro per ticket. Includes entrance to the old St John hospital.

The ticket included the historical film as well as entry to the short walk through the hospital precinct. The video is available with headphones in over 20 languages and is an amazing account of the islands history. Our guide was both informative and pleasant through the hospital and clearly had a passion for the history.

The movie lasts 45 minutes. You can select the narrative in close to 20 languages. It gives you a very good overview of the history of the islands from prehistoric to today.

We had been recommended a trip to this experience. I wasn't sure if it was my 'thing' but it was an excellent presentation which I really enjoyed. The guide for the Sacra Infermia was very informative although we were unable to visit the building because it was being used when we were there.

We are so glad we went here. A 45 minute film shown with multilingual options about the history of Malta. I can see it being busy in the summer but we were there off season. Highly recommended.

This audio visual presentation of the history of Malta is presented in a quick and interesting way. It is informative without being over-whelming. Around half an hour of information kept me on my toes. Better than any guide book. It's a great escape from the hot sun or a rainy day. You can even find discounted tickets if you look... More
