If you enjoy history, especially the military variety this will indeed strike a chord. Great exhibitions, informative and thought provoking. Tells you a lot about that small island and its colorful history.
A very interesting place to visit. So many things to see and learn about our beloved island Malta, during the war times. Perfect tour of the museum and shelter, with the guidance of the well organised tour guidance Ms. Ruth Muscat. The details and the...More
This museum showcases Maltas involvement in WWII using great collections of historic memorabilia, video, sound and walks you through the incredible labyrinth of underground tunnels used as bomb shelters. We did the self guided audio tour which was comprehensive and allowed us to move at...More
A comprehensive museum takes you from the rise of Italian fascism to the first bombing raids through to the tide turning as finally Sicily is overrun by the Allies and the bombing raids ease. The rations the local population were expected to live on are...More

The top part of the museum is suitable for people with mobility problems, but the Air Raid Shelter, because of its caractheristics, is not for them. But just the part of the museum is amazing enough for a visit. You can spend a lot of time there, with all the information on touchscreens, different boards, etc. All the original uniforms, badges, flags, videos, and also a small e creation of the shelter where you are able to feel like during an air raid...
Hope this will help you a bit
