Very good audio visual show about the history of Malta. Definitely recommended if you visit Malta for the first time. Show is about an hour and you can go to the Maltese Knights’ Hospital tour afterwards, or get a combination ticket for the war museum....More

Wow, what a great presentation. A beautiful narration of the history of Malta, with much information that was new to us. It was not too long and definitely captured our interest. The theatre seating was very comfortable.

A very good introduction to Malta and to Valletta. An excellent film which covers all the key features of the island's history followed by an amusing guided visit to the old hospital/infirmary site - now the Conference Centre, Thoroughly worthwhile.
