  • The Sunday morning re-enactment is terrific. The museum is large, spread out over many, many rooms. If you want to do it justice you'll need at least 2 hours. Interesting if you're REALLY into history...  read more »
  • half price with malta discount card was extremely good value, fantastic views outside and lots to see inside 
  • The war museum was one of the most beautiful museums throughout Malta. Nice set up with various buildings. Must-see!

  • I 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.
  • 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.
  • Stunning views. Rich history. Well restored. Friendly staff. Miss this is your loss
  • 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.
  • The views are stunning! It's a hardcore museum experience though even for the absolute history buffs. Def worth visiting though!
