We wanted to go here to see the massive canon and what we experienced is consistent with what other reviewers say - excellent. We did the combined ticket for Fort Rinella, Malta at War Museum, LAscaris War Rooms and Saluting Battery. This was great values and you can do it over a number of days. Our visit to Fort Rinella included transport from the Saluting Battery in a mini bus/van. This itself was great as you were not delayed by public transport, which has it's challenges, so cant be relied on to get you to where you want by the time you want! Though return transport was not included, there is a public bus stop at the entrance and it is the start of the bus route to Valletta so no problem getting on it. The volunteers there take you through a series of reenactments which are wonderful. You learn about the firearms used, how they trained for battle. Also plenty to see in the museum. Food is good value, so buy it there as sales support their fundraising.

Got the shuttle from the saltuing battery over to Fort Rinella not knowing what to expect. Ended up spending several hours here. Very enthusiastic staff with both a tour of the fort and several bayonet and gun displays. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We came by transfer from the saluting guns. Went on a guided tour and saw several displays of guns, bayonets and swords. The big Armstrong 100-ton gun was awsome to see. Me and my brother paid a smal support fee and got to fire a Martini Henry gun. The guides were funny and talented.

This was a surprising find and I wish I had left myself more time to explore it. I took the 12:20 transfer from the saluting battery and enjoyed the reenactments ,gun fire and exploring the site. Whilst it is not big the site is interesting, the small museum has some interesting displays and the displays of musket use , bayonet use and semaphore by enthusiastic team members in 19th century uniform were excellent. Children will enjoy this.
