If you want to understand a little of the history of Malta then visit. We had the guided tour and found it really interesting learning about the Country and what we didn’t know.

We found this little museum very interesting, especially if you have an interest in the war and the island. If you expect to find a wizzy interactive place then it is possibly not for you. You don't need computers when looking around this museum. Its...More

Start the tour from Upper Barakka and you will be taken to the War Rooms as part of the tour. Upper Barakka is close to Castille, the prime minister's office.
