Really interesting place to visit. I was amazed at how big it was. Lots of information about the place and a helpful and knowledgable gentleman at the entrance. Well worth a visit

The curator was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tunnels are a wonderful insight into how the islanders had to live during the war. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Malta.

A must visit and a tribute to the ingenuity and bravery of the Maltese people. A simple museum with information cards every 100m. Spend as long or as short as you want. Don't worry you can stand upright during the entire visit
