Rarely do I give such a poor review. This lacked all imaginations the 3D really doesn’t work well. The audio starts half way through, some sections were not in use. Frankly? Waste of money.

The displays are a very well done and the information is really interesting. I found it a little hard to follow because I don't have a baseline knowledge of the history of the region, but the little that I did glean kept my attention.

I would recommend reading about the Knights first and then following it up with this interesting tour. It should help you to absorb the information you have just read. With just €6 you get do an interesting 30 min. tour on the Knights of Malta.
