It’s an easy bus ride from Valletta main terminal. The drive out there reminded me of the roads in Gozo. I enjoyed the 3D video presentation explaining the history of the temples, making it relatable today. It’s a nice walk down to the two temples....More

Great temples, well presented and protected, but horrible customer experience. It could be rated 5 stars if there are better customer service. We were asked to either give passport or 20 euros as deposit when we hire the audio guide (1 euro each for the...More

Fabulous visitor centre and information models, displays and film. Temples were breathtaking as was the views over the sea. Brilliant experience would highly recommend to see Malta’s prehistoric history

Not being a history buff, I was initially sceptical of the temples and especially the 3d film. Thankfully the spray water want working so we just had the 3d glasses on. Actually if you avoid the museum, watch the film and wander through the temples...More

It will always be a mysterious dwelling or temple place by peoples unknown. A rare look into Neolithic history created by the beautiful and sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Before Stonehenge or the pyramids it was erected by peoples who had no examples of other construction patterns.

This site is thousands of years older than the pyramids in Egypt. It's amazing to see what this culture was able to do during their 1000 year existence at the site and in the museum. Then later see the replicas carved in stone beneath the...More

The Mnajdra Temples are located in the same site as the Hagar Qim Temples. Bus 74 from Valletta or the Airport Bus 201 from Rabat should get you to Hagar Qim. After seeing the Hagar Qim temples, Mnajdra is a short 600m walk away. The...More

Only 600m away from the hagar qim temple. Good preserved site and well worth a visit. The sites are covered with a big screen to protect the from the elements, so it's hard to take good pictures.

We also took the bus and just showed up. We had the malta multisite pass (50€/pp), so the entrance fee was included in the pass. If you want to visit several sites and museums, this pass can save you some money.

I can confirm that the tower is not open to visitors, or at least it was not on my visit in 2016 and was not looking as if any change was anticipated..
