With an audio description in lots of languages you will definately get the history of Malta from prehistoric times to more recent. Accessed through a tunnel I don't know if it would be suitable for disabled.

Totally worthwhile, 45 minute movie, headphones in a multitude of languages. It explains why Malta has so many forts & fortresses. They’ve been invaded, conquered and colonized for 7000 years, just amazing, and they’re still here! A great way to get acquainted with Malta’s history,...More

An amazing experience in the limestone tunnels of Valleta. The cafe was limited, but adequate. The guided tour of the hospital complex was wonderful, with an amazing guide.

This 50-minute movie gives a nice introduction to the history of Malta. This little island has such a deep history, involving so many cultures, invasions, and wars, that it is helpful to see it summarized in a well-made movie. The associated gift shop is very...More

Well worth a visit, it takes around 45 minutes and is set in a theatre you have headphones to listen to the commentary and a dial on the seat to choose the language.
