Well laid out museum offering great value for money. Really good displays, with clear but concise commentary to read along the way. The museum takes you through all the stages in Malta's turbulent and interesting history and showed you what a strong nation they had...More
Spread over 6 different buildings you go through 5000BC to present day.
The story is well told but you need to spend time to take it all in.
It would be a perfect place to start a visit to Valletta so to have the picture...More
Very well structured display and lots of great artifacts to see and not to mention the great views all around within the fort itself. I really enjoyed the history of the knights of St-John's period and the war display of some swords and other artifacts...More
I visited Fort St. Elmo and the National War Museum in August 2019. The museum did a very good job of covering Napoleon (Napoleon occupied Malta) and the history of Malta during World War 1 and World War 2. The German bombing campaign against Malta...More
I bought a Birgu senior ticket (3 sites for 9 euros). Just asked at the first one and they supplied the ticket so I assume Valletta will be the same. I took my passport but was never asked for proof once. Mind you I probably... More
I bought a Birgu senior ticket (3 sites for 9 euros). Just asked at the first one and they supplied the ticket so I assume Valletta will be the same. I took my passport but was never asked for proof once. Mind you I probably look older!! Enjoy your trip

To get into the forts moat, do as follows. When you passed the duck area, follow the way up to the small gate, then you go down left towards to the officearea...follow the shore, it is a little bit rocky...but keep going on 100-200 meters, on right hand side you have an non official entrance through the stonewall, there you can go into the moat. There are an other way also, when you passes the small gate turn right, and follow it uphill via the path, when you are at uphills top, turn left and follow the steep side gently...go a few meters..you see a stonestaircase leading down or up, depends on which way you get in. Go down there, and you are in the moat. Down in the moat at the walls are small entrances in to the wall...you can go in there but you need a flashlight, because it is very dark. It was really interesting and fun, it as almost like an old adventure game called "Guild of Thieves" from 1987, you can this game on the net. Good luck.
