It is a good summary of the history but 16 euros is too much. The theatre is old and not so sure about the cleanliness of the head sets. Both of ours were crackly. Started 10 minutes late so no time for the hospital tour....More

The video is a broad but not too dense intro to the islands history and who governed it/invaded over time. Followed by a half an hour guided tour of the hospital over the road.

As an introduction to Malta the film is very satisfactory. On the other hand, much that is presented, found in books on Malta and its history.
