I better start by saying it was a wet day and the woman and I (we) were a bit chilly. Our first trip to Malta and just over jet lag. Not being historians and not researching any of the history of Malta we knew nothing!...More

Nestled almost to the point of being hidden in the walls of Mdina, the Knights of Malta is billed as “An Epic Adventure Museum.” It doesn’t quite live up to that kind of hype, but has enough positive aspects in its presentation to warrant a...More

Cheap visit. Realistic models give life to the history of Malta, its warfares and glorious events. Interesting visit with audiophones and à 20 minute circuit to be followed by foot. Memorable trip in the past!

Visited with my wife on our honeymoon after visiting the war museum in Valletta. That museum is far superior and I would easily recommend it over what we experienced here. Staff is less than enthused about being in a generic costume, which of course I...More

Rarely do I give such a poor review. This lacked all imaginations the 3D really doesn’t work well. The audio starts half way through, some sections were not in use. Frankly? Waste of money.

The combination of a short 3D film (which isn’t great quality but content is ok) & the stance by stance narrative through the mannequin museum works surprisingly well. A couple of the displays may be a bit gory for young kids but they’re actually quite...More
