Guided by the knowledgeable and entertaining Justin, we explored the rooms in the tunnels under Valletta from whence the defence of Malta against Axis bombers, and later the invasion of Sicily in Operation Husky, was planned. Thoroughly recommended!

My husband said this was a great museum but long walk to access. I didn't go down as no disabled access. Mike the guide was very knowledgeable and a good laugh.

We did a tour around the Lascaris War Museum in Valletta and found it very informative. Mike was our guide and had a wealth of knowledge. I didn’t realise how much Malta was bombed. I would definitely recommend seeing it.

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.
