Full of information about world war 2, the part the Malta people played in it. There is a underground bunker you can go in can go in, it is a little scary. Other than that worth a tour.

Went with my 2 kids this morning @ the Malta at War Museum. Our guide (Ruth) was very knowledgeable & helpful. This World War II Museum highlights the island's role in the said war & includes an air-raid shelter.

A very enjoyable and informative couple of hours. The guide was excellent and the exhibits were very interesting. If you are interested in WWII and the George Cross island this is something not to miss. The café was well stocked and reasonably priced.

The top part of the museum is suitable for people with mobility problems, but the Air Raid Shelter, because of its caractheristics, is not for them. But just the part of the museum is amazing enough for a visit. You can... More
