At €10 for adults & €7.50 for over 60, this is a must for anybody interested in history visiting Valletta, based in the fort itself there are several rooms taking you from prehistoric to present day, in my opinion it ‘joins up a lot of...More
I grew up in a military town so have grown up with the military and it’s history all around me. I knew Malta was an important part of our history so wanted to go to this.
Really poor all around. The main info is written...More
It seemed a bit slow getting started in the visit to the fort. The war museum made the long walk worthwhile.
The exhibits are progressive through history, starting 5000 BC and goes through modern times in 6 buildings/exhibits. Many of the films, and pictures, in...More
A relatively quick history of Malta through its defining conflicts brought to life by a series of naively charming presentations and some excellent exhibits. Worth the money. It was very quiet when we visited so no pressure to move on.
Just because this is situated within Fort St. Elmo, doesn't mean its purely related to it. It's a fantastic way of being educated with everything Malta. It works by entering room by room, which covers a different period in time - from the first settlers,...More
An incredible experience not to be missed
It takes you through the amazing history of Malta in 6 parts in 6 different parts of the Fort St.Elmo.
There is also a Courtyard with individual rooms depicting accommodation/lifestyle at different parts of the Maltese history

To get into the forts moat, do as follows. When you passed the duck area, follow the way up to the small gate, then you go down left towards to the officearea...follow the shore, it is a little bit rocky...but keep going on 100-200 meters, on right hand side you have an non official entrance through the stonewall, there you can go into the moat. There are an other way also, when you passes the small gate turn right, and follow it uphill via the path, when you are at uphills top, turn left and follow the steep side gently...go a few meters..you see a stonestaircase leading down or up, depends on which way you get in. Go down there, and you are in the moat. Down in the moat at the walls are small entrances in to the wall...you can go in there but you need a flashlight, because it is very dark. It was really interesting and fun, it as almost like an old adventure game called "Guild of Thieves" from 1987, you can this game on the net. Good luck.
