This is well worth a visit.
It's well run with a good atmosphere.
It is very engaging .for full effect try to enter through the long tunnel .
It takes about an hour with a guide or a hand held audio device. There is a film of Malta and the war which is on a loop and is worth sitting through

Stefan's free guided tour was a passionate and informative tale of Malta's role in WW2. Essential to go with the guide to get the most from your visit.

A wonderful visit through One of the most important places to the victory of the allies on the WWII.
The guided tour (Stefan) was probably the best tour i have ever had.

We managed to make the last guided tour of the day starting at 4 pm. The tour was very informative and interesting and I learned a lot about Malta's importance in the Second World War and about the place itself. I feel that visiting the attraction with out taking part in a guided tour might not be worth the 12 Euro entrance fee.
