The 40 minute video presentation explains, in detail, Malta's transformation through the ages. Short and to the point, one can understand a lot of Malta by sitting through this clear and concise history lesson.

The history of Malta is quite well explained in 45 mins. You never know 45 mins have passed by when the narration comes to an end. The number of languages in which the show is available is quite astonishing.

10 euros to watch a film that doesn't last an hour, this attraction must generate a lot of income, in my opinion its overpriced.

A 45 minute film in a comfortable cinema really pieced together all that we had seen on this remarkable island. This was followed by a trip (included in the price) to the infirmary. What a great guide we had she was so knowledgeable and made our day with her great command of English and her humour. If you miss everything else in Valletta make sure you see this.

Try and see this at the beginning of your visit as it takes you on a whistle stop tour of the development of Malta's history and culture -fascinating stuff.
