“A useful introduction to Malta”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

If you haven't had time to read up on Maltese history before going, this attraction is the remedy. In a 45 minute audio-visual show, narrated over headphones in many languages, an overview of the islands' past is provided, from the neolithic to the second world war. The content is understandably simplified, but an excellent introduction.Indeed, this attraction has seemingly been so successful as to spawn imitators in more than one city on the island, but this one is reputedly the best and was certainly superior in implementation to the one other we visited. There is also a cafe, toilets and souvenir shop on site, and horse cabs will drop off or pick up from outside.

“This has to be seen by first time visitors”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Having been advised by a Maltese work colleague, we visited one of the daily shows & enjoyed every minute of the history of Malta. Following the show we also visited the old hospital building as part of the Malta experience this was also very interesting n well worth the visit

“A great introduction”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is a great introduction to Malta and its history. A story well told and makes one aware of Malta's stormy past and the diversity of its people and its culture. The fact that the entry ticket included a visit to the Knights Hospitaller was a bonus. My only negative about this visit was the commentary through headphones had a constant background foreign language voice echo which made listening more difficult

“Worth the time...”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We saw this movie the day we arrived, and with jet lag and little sleep it was hard to stay awake. This was a nicely done piece but go see it well rested.
