This tour starts with an audio / visual display that takes about 40mins and is extremely worthwhile seeing , the tour then takes in the Knights Hospital which is really incredible . It well worth the entry fee . A word of warning , it can get very busy .

The film was very interesting and gave great insight to the history of Malta. At 18 euro per person I initially thought it was expensive and not good value for money. However, as we emerged from the tunnel and made our way back up the entrance steps we were met by our guide who gathered us up and advised us... More

To really understand what you are looking at in Malta you need to understand its history. The Malta experience is a good, very well narrated documentary of that history that shows clearly how the different empires have left their mark on this island.Commentary via headphones in 20 languages, comfortable chairs, lasts 45 minutes.

This is a movie of the interesting history of Malta, ranging back for almost 6 thousand years. "Times of Noah?"

My second visit to the Malta Experience. I was keen to get my friends to see the film as they had not been to Malta before. It gives a excellent potted history of this tiny island. They found it very informative. The trip across the road to the hospital is an added bonus. Our guide was brilliant and gave us... More
