The weather had turned nasty and we were looking for something to do inside. This was a 5 min walk from our rented flat . I thought it might be a bit 'naff' but actually the 45 min film is well done and gives a...More

We visited knowing nothing about Malta's history and this provided a good insight. There is a film of around 40 minutes and a tour around the old hospital - our tour guide was really informative & had a great sense of humour, I presume this...More

The Malta Experience is just a documentary film taking you through the history of the island. To call it an "Experience" is really stretching the marketing. It is interesting enough, but I picked up all the same information from guide books and tours. Frustratingly, the...More

Possibly over-priced for what is essentially a movie and a tour but the movie is very informative and illuminated a lot of things we had no idea about before. A good place to start a trip to Malta and put the history, language and architecture...More

You are placed in a very comfortable theatre, with well positioned seating (everybody can see) and you have a headset with the option of lots of lanuages. The content? It takes you back to the first settlers on Malta, giving you useful date context and...More

The show was disappointing after all the hoopla. My headset didn’t work properly hit and miss on words. Center of the row in a packed theater, no way to get out or change seats. The movie had no credits so you could not see what...More

The theatre in which you watch the film has no air conditioning, no air ventilation. It was disgustingly hot. You could smell odurs from other people. I advise to give this a miss. The Malta experience was a horrible experience.More

If you are looking for wide sandy beaches then you will be disappointed. Most are small and stoney or off of rocks but the water is crystal clear. Some hotels have small 'artificial' sandy beaches by which I mean they have... More
