This museum is well worth a visit and if you are visiting the Lascaris War rooms then do by the ticket which lets you visit this museum and Fort Rinella too. This multi site ticket is great value. The displays here are very good but the air raid shelter is a fantastic experience.

Was a beautiful experience and gave a really chilling and educational insight into what the Maltese went through during WWII. The shelter in particular was a very interesting visit! Ruth, our guide, was absolutely golden. Highly recommended!

This Small yet educational museum. Was extrremly interseting. We had a tour guide optional. We learnt how Malta was One of the most. Heavily bombed Islands during the War. How British the Military Became Huge force in the Survival of Malta. There are lots of bunkers/shelters around the And one is here that you can visit. It is a warren of tunnels that lead to rooms that were uttillised for many things for example medical room. You provided with a hard hat as some of the tunnels are narrow or low. It is an unforgetable experience. That makes you very humble and thankfull

We really enjoyed our visit to Malta at War and would recommend it.
As it was a Sunday, admission was via the Cafe. The lady there could not have been more friendly and helpful. We just had drinks and snacks, however, we saw sandwiches being freshly made for others and they looked very good. The main exhibition was really interesting and exploring the tunnels was great fun, you definitely need the hard hats provided. Do visit the staff and exhibitions are both excellent.

Glad I went to this museum and to learn the extent of the damage caused to the people and the island. Their personal fortitude is worth remembering. The film narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier is the focal point as well as the bomb shelters below. This was a good stop.
