Interesting visit to state rooms and the small museum with an impressive collection of armoury. Takes just over an hour to see both. Take the free information guide to hear about the different armoury pieces.

10 Monopoly money will get you into sacred knightly orders head quarters, let you learn about Malta's pivotal role in shaping Mediterranean history & see something mainland Europe ashamedly lost when they put the Templars to the torch
