  • Very interesting place. There is a lot to learn about Malta's history during the past centuries. Very good exhibition with many audio visual elements. Entrance fee is rather moderate.
  • 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 nice and well done museum to go through. It takes 1-2 hours to see everything, and I was pleased with the quality of the content and information provided.
  • You can see much more museum than fort - but anyway not so bad.
  • 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.
