    This museum traces the history of Malta during the second world war. It is very informative and has a beautiful collection of objects, pictures, movies. Our teenagers (not very trendy Museum) really like this because it's very visual. We were impressed by the visit of the well-preserved bunker. The audio guide in french is well done, synthetic, but enough for those who are not very comfortable with English. The visit is quick and allows you to understand a little more the Maltese history.
