St. Elmo Pl. | Fort St Elmo, Valletta, Island of Malta VLT 1741, Malta
Brilliant place to get to grips with the whole of Maltese history from pre history to present day . The Fort itself is set in a significant area of Valetta so it is easy to imagine what happened over the years. The museum has a...More
You could easily spend a whole day here, there is so much to see and take in. The museum is extraordinary, the attention to detail, presentation, setting are remarkable. It illustrated how important Malta was (and is) in shaping our history over many centuries. If...More

Very disappointed with the museum not much referring to the 2 world wars. exhibits spread out to much and some hard to see. Saw some children there and they were totally bored.
Seeing the Fort was nice. Found the Malta experience and War Rooms much...More
This museum covers all of Malta’s history. Very informative, lots of displays. The displays are in various rooms and each covers a specific period. Outside the views from the ramparts are stunning. Well worth a visit.
Was really looking forward to visiting the museum but was a little put out at the start by the two men at the broken entrance gate. A bit surly to say the least. Not exactly a low cost attraction.
The rooms with displays are quite...More

To get into the forts moat, do as follows. When you passed the duck area, follow the way up to the small gate, then you go down left towards to the officearea...follow the shore, it is a little bit rocky...but keep going on 100-200 meters, on right hand side you have an non official entrance through the stonewall, there you can go into the moat. There are an other way also, when you passes the small gate turn right, and follow it uphill via the path, when you are at uphills top, turn left and follow the steep side gently...go a few meters..you see a stonestaircase leading down or up, depends on which way you get in. Go down there, and you are in the moat. Down in the moat at the walls are small entrances in to the wall...you can go in there but you need a flashlight, because it is very dark. It was really interesting and fun, it as almost like an old adventure game called "Guild of Thieves" from 1987, you can this game on the net. Good luck.
