An opportunity to quickly familiarise with Malta's incredibly rich - albeit unfortunately often violent - history because of its strategic location. Film is followed by a guided tour of La Sacra Infermeria across the road, included in the ticket price, whereas The Knights Hospitaliers exhibition in the same building is regrettably separate.

This is a multilingual 45 minute presentation of 7,000 of Maltese history so you don't get a lot of detail, but you do get Derek Jakcobi as English narrator. It does certainly overplay Malta's role in stopping the Ottoman invasion of Europe; I think Poland, Austria and Hungary might differ in their interpretation. But it's a good overview for putting...

Expensive, old-fashioned presentation (not even a movie), with basic historical information about the island. Crowded in the peak season. You'd rather save money and wander around or visit Fort St. Elmo.

Dear Guest, Kindly note that nowhere does our advertising state our tourist attraction is a movie - it is an audio-visual show. Nonetheless, we are sorry you didn't enjoy your visit - each to their own! Kind Regards, Emily Demajo More

Video and guided tour of the hospital with very good guide: not to be missed when visiting Valetta. Shows on the hour until 4pm on weekdays, ends earlier on weekends.

Should be first thing to visit. Highly recommended and enjoyable. Comfortable seats, interesting cinematic experience, comprehensive history and sets the scene for the rest of your stay in Malta. Commentary in just about every language known!

It was recommended to see this movie at the beginning of one's stay in Malta. I expected a panorama or views. This film is NOT that. Go see it to understand the history of Malta and the Maltese.

One could read the history online of Malta and save the cost of the entry fee. Same with the hospital tour. There is a cafe connected to the Malta Experience and the food tends to suck. Our cakes were dried out and flavorless. The lasagna was heated up in a microwave as was the sandwich. The cost of the two... More
