  • 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
