This is still being renovated but there is still enough to see to get a picture of it’s importance. When the museum artefacts are installed, I have no doubt it will be excellent. The tour is free and highly recommended.

Very interesting place to visit. I highly recommend, especially to those with a decent, background knowledge of WW2. It is worth joining a tour, which is free. Ours was guided by Steve Church who knew his stuff.

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 :)
