  • Very interesting museum explaining the maritime history of Malta, which spans over centuries. Had the distinct pleasure of a guided tour by Liam, the curator of the museum. His narrative takes you straight back to the time the seafarers and pirates roamed the seven seas.
  • We went to the museum to visit the HMS Neptune memorial for family reasons. The staff were very helpful, entry fee is reasonable and some of the exhibits are stunning. Well worth a visit if you're interested in naval/Malta history.
  • Tiny, clean, interesting. Light years away from other maritime museums (eg Barcelona for it's size and boats) but it's ok.
  • Got the trio ticket and I enjoyed visiting this museum, although they could do with a spell checker and doing some proper research on places. It's Devonport Plymouth not Davenport.
  • An attractive building from Malta's British Protectorate/Colonial past, part of the beautiful harbour.
