Visited yesterday and very interesting place with complette history of Malta from Ottoman period through to independence. Good mix of audiovisuals and displays. Some of the displays were lacking information cards to explain what individual items were and the only other complaint is a total lack of any seating. Well worth a visit if you are happy to stand for several hours.
Love this museum, particularly the George cross medal that was given to the island after the war.
Pretty cool loved it it had 7 sights to visit and it will take you about 1 hour and a half really worth it
Perfect location for war history lovers from whole world Unusual using of modern technologies everywhere in museum
Very interesting and extensive history of Malta's role in world war 2. A must for any history conscious people
