As many before have mentioned this is the best way to start a visit to Valletta and to Malta as you get a good introduction to the people and the historical context that make up this great nation.

I think it is great for all ages as the kids who were there were so fascinated by the movements and the move type action, it was finished too soon!

There are so many deals as well to get good rates either ask your concierge, of get the Malta Pass which includes free access.

Treat this film like bread...We sandwiched a lot into our Valetta visit- this film rounded up all we had learnt, but it would be just as good at the beginning! Slightly mannered, didactic and self-conscious, the presentation nonetheless was active, colourful and memorable

This is a half hour film giving a history of the island. It is easy to follow and you are given headsets so you can hear it in your own language. Maybe not good for young children as they could get bored.
