  • This place is perfectly restored and the Museum is very rich. It's a staple of Valletta but the place lack of advertising. The visit is done through several rooms and the PMR will love to browse throughout the site.

  • We were looking forward to visiting the Fort. On our last visit to Malta 3 years ago it was closed as works were being carried out. It was so disappointing to see the finished product. The idea of int...  more »
  • When you switch to Valletta one must do a view in this Fort. In addition to beautiful views make you follow a tour done in different rooms (7) located inside the Fort. In all of them being told part of the story and pride of Malta. Are revisited the fundamental steps of past history to the present day. The whole thing is written/recounted in maltese and English. Though for me it all was not understandable (especially movies) worth the visit and 10 Euros a ticket.

  • This is a beautifully put together museum of Malta's military history. They make extensive use of the amazing buildings of st Elmo's fort, so there is more walking than you would expect. However it breaks up the different eras nicely. The exhibits on the Great Siege of 1565 and the WW2 convoys are fantastic.
  • Very thorough museum. With few other guests we seemed to have run of the whole fort. Very well presented history of war in Malta and it's affect on the people of the islands.
  • The outside is lovely. We've been to Valletta three times and the fort has never been open. Trying again this year, I'm anticipating an extra star if we ever get inside. Extra start awarded. Really well maintained and good views.
  • It was great seeing what was quickly built to keep the invaders out and how great this fortification was. History is always great and learning it is awesome too.
  • Stunning views. Rich history. Well restored. Friendly staff. Miss this is your loss
