Me and my brother think this was great, we had a great guide (Steve) who made the whole tour very interesting. We learned alot about Maltas role in WW2 and how the bunker was used.

A great place to spend 30-45 min either with a guide provided (at set times though) or using the provided audio guide. 12 euros to enter which is a little expensive but not over the top. It gives an interesting insight into how Malta defended...More

We visited the war rooms to get out of the sun. We were shown around by James who was an excellent guide, really informative and clearly passionate. I had not expected the tour to be as good as it was. Definitely worth the entry price....More

Located close to Upper Barrakka Gardens, I’d recommend combining this with a visit to the Saluting Battery and NATO tunnels which are both nearby. As for the war rooms, from arrival staff were friendly and helpful. Entry cost €12. You can explore at your leisure...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 :)
