Recently refurbished this museum covers Malta's role in WW1 and WW2 in a chronological walk through.
The section on the first war looks at Malta's part as the Hospital for the campaigns in the Meditteranean - including the Dardanelles - the numbers of soldiers passing through the island was huge. The island held some interesting POWs from germany including Rudulph Hess. Lots of guns and uniforms to look at.
Moving on to WW2 the key exhibits include a copy of the George Cross awarded to the island in 1942, the Gloster Sea Gladiator fighter plane Faith ( no wings) and a number of bits of ME109s and Spitfires.
I found some old film footage taken by a soldier during 1942 of people going about their business during some of the heaviest bombing of the war really interesting and it gave me a slight - can you get anymore - of a sense of the conditions suffered during 1942.
The information on the Pedestal convoy from August 1942 is well constructed and to me the highlight of the museum.
I understand the museum is mainly run by volunteers and donations - well done to them all.
