Well worth it

We went with three children aged 4,7&8 and the 15 mins show was not too scary for them . This is followed by a 15 minutes museum w audio guide. The whole thing is quite well done... read more

You get to see a 3D movie about the Knights of Malta, which is ok in terms of information and then you will be automatically guided through the museum with an audio guide, which doesn't let you go at your speed and if you are not interested in what the audio the is telling you, then you still have to...

The show seems to start every ten minutes so we had to wait a few. Then we sat through an appalling 3-d story, watching it without the glasses wasn't the best, but it was better than with them which was a shame as we had to sort through to find 2sets that weren't scratched. Then we walked through the exhibits.... More

We spent a very pleasing 45 mis at the slightly bizarre Knights of Malta interactive experience. It is a very reasonable price and as long as you can suspend disbelief and the earnestness of the owners on the event potentially being life changing the rather iffy waxworks and dodgy audio commentary in the end were quite entertaining - and we...

3D movie is too old and poor quality. Excursion was weird, audio wasn't working properly. History about Mdina was fine.

We were undecided whether to book both the Mdina experience as well as the Knoghts of Malta. Fortunately we did. The 3-D presentation was well done, background music not too loud, interesting comentary. We would have been happy to leave at the end of it, but then we would have missed the excellent set pieces, illustrating various times and events... More

When visiting the lovely little island of Malta one must pay homage to the Knights of Malta. This is truly a must see for history buffs and anyone interested in cultural development.

Starts with a picture show then a wee tour all with headphones so in your preferred language. €6.50 per adult €3 per child. Worth it if you like to hear the history of the Knights.
