The worst thing about this place is finding it! We walked for miles using Google Maps before we finally found the entrance. Interestingly, the fact that it was so difficult to find what was once Malta's best kept secret made it more rewarding when we...More

Thank you for your review and visit. Finding the Lascaris War Rooms is very easy if one follows the instructions given on our promotional material including the website. But the best way of reaching the War Rooms is from the Saluting Battery which is also...More

The exhibitions are definitely work in progress , with new artefacts being added regularly. There is a 20-minute film of wartime Malta which you can see on arrival and it was well worth seeing. Our tour should have lasted 30 minutes, but our enthusiastic guide...More

Start the tour from Upper Barakka and you will be taken to the War Rooms as part of the tour. Upper Barakka is close to Castille, the prime minister's office.

Hi, I am unsure of the exact times of the tours, when I went one was due to start so we just tagged on to that. It was about an hour and is all included in the admission price. It really is well worth it :)
