This attraction is a bit pricey at 15 euros. The Malta Experience is a 40 min film showing the history of the island and is worth seeing if you are interested in history.

Take an hour or two on your first day in Malta, at The Malta Experience, to get yourself acquainted with this fascinating archipelago and its long history of inhabitants. Then marvel at what was surely the most forward thinking hospital in the world in its time.

The film show gives a good understanding of the history of Malta, its well devised and in all languages. The hospital tour after is very interesting and makes it reasonable value. It is still not a cheap experience at 15 euro.

A nice exhibition on the growth and development of the importance of Malta. A nice video positions Malta at the start and there was lots to read and see throughout the exhibition. Worth a visit using the combined 10 euro ticket with the war rooms.

We took the movie in after we had spent a few days in Valletta. I wish we would have done it sooner. It gives you a great perspective of the local history. It helps make sense of many things in Valletta and explains the city.

Maltese history at it's best. Visited the place as a history outing. Cafetteria is brilliant too, serving great coffee and snacks. Plus really nice stuff. View from caffeteria is amazing. 10/10 for this spot on the island.

This media presentation was a really fascinating introduction to Maltas' history. We combined it with a visit to the knights hospital which was also very good.
