This is a 45 minute (or so) film loop (multi-lingual commentary) that runs through the day - not a full son et lumiere experience.

Well worth doing as one of your first few things in Valletta as it provides a useful historic backdrop to Malta (Neolithic age, Middle Ages through to World Wars and Independence).

We also received a free guided tour through the old Hospital of St John which was enjoyable and informative as part of the package.

This extremely well made film (with voiceover by Derek Jacobi) gives an excellent summary of Malta's history from pre-history to the present day

We arrived a minute after the filmed history started and had great difficulty finding head phone giving the commentary in English. All our fault as there is a dial to switch the language on the arm of your seat which is hard to see in the dimmed light. Either arrive on time for instructions or remember this review.

There is a lot of information given in an interesting time line format. Really worth going, especially if you are listening in a language you understand.

Very interesting and informative show about the Maltese islands history, for the last 7000 years. The audio part is great and in 17 different languages, the visual part could be done bettter in this day and age, which is a little disappointing, but all in all a good experience worth seeing in Valletta.

Very informative visit. Obviously well thought out but a little commercialised. Don't be tempted by the taxis and horse drawn carriages which wait outside to pounce on you.
