  • We visited The The Knights of Malta, 1 adult and 2 children aged 10 years and 12 years respectively. On the site you'll see a 3d movie and there is an exhibition of great looking wax figures. Both audio guided in many languages (incl. Danish). We watched the movie before the exhibition and it was a minus, since the exhibition as just was a retelling of the exciting story we had just seen at the movies. Could we make it about, we would see the exhibition before the movie. Despite the high season we were only 4 with on tour of the exhibition, which was appropriate, since there is not much space to get around on. 3D movie was interesting, but somewhat unclear in the image. Might have worked better if it had been equipped with better glasses than those of cardboard. Staff put the audio wizard up before the show and it worked perfectly for everyone. Is definitely worth the visit if you are interested in learning more about Malta's history.

  • We were talked into buying "cheaper" joint tickets for these two places. Not worth the money. Mdina experience is a very poorly made, blurry film, over such a massive time period it gets confusing. Kn...  more »
  • Very nice and pittoresque inside, possible to take pictures and a lot of explanations. But a bit short ... We finished the tour in 20 minutes.  more »

  • Very disappointing. Don't waste your time and money on it.
  • We had a great day at Mdina, including visiting the Knights of Malta 3D show, which we found interesting. This was followed by a audio self tour with very realistic scenes as you moved around following the story. There was a member of staff on site to help if you had any bother with your headset. We purchased tickets for this venue & the Mdina experience for a total of €11. All the staff at both sites were very friendly. We can recomend the small cafe at the Mdina experience for value & taste. The coffee & cakes were delicious, we went back for luxury hot chocolate before we headed home. Wrap up warm as it's still a bit cold at this time of year.
  • Not worth the money. The 3d effect is terrible and headphones didn't work properly. The staff mislead us by saying that show had just started so we should join. When we came in it was already in the middle so we missed a lot.
  • Lovingly crafted historical wax exhibits. The video was a bit... Historically slanted to favor Christians and the crusades against purported barbarism Muslims
  • Very basic knowlege of maltese Knights of St. John. The tour starts with an unimpressive 30 minutes animation, and after that You get a tour with ann audio guide which not always works properly. You cann totally skip it.
