  • This by all means imposing building gives you a good feel about the history and all the nations that have occupied Malta over the centuries. Certainly a must see for anybody interested in history !  more »
  • At first I thought that 10€ (7.50€ for over 60's) was quite expensive, but once I'd seen everything, I was really impressed. Very good layout of the museum in different parts of the fort, lots of shor...  more »
  • Yet another magnificent and historic fort with a very interesting museum, where we again get much information on Malta's long and fascinating history, it's definitely worth spending a few hours on.

  • Overpriced compared to fort St. Angelo. Kept getting asked by employees to show my ticket to prove I paid to get into the museum, which I had. There are many interesting areas not under refurbishment which are simply roped off and blocked from public access. That being said, the national war museum is interesting and the exhibits are well done. The views from the fort are great as well.
  • Very impressive and well arranged museum of Malta history. All the way from ancient times, through The Great Siege, World War 2 to modern times and ascention to EU. Must visit place if you wish to learn about Malta history.
  • Could easily spend more than four hours wandering through the buildings. Interactive displays were impressive. Liked the baby gas mask and medal of honour.
  • Very cool place :) a lot of interesting things you can learn about the history of Malta :)
  • A very well chosen place to present an important part of history. The intelligent use of mordern texhnique keeps one focused and interested in learning more.
