One can visit some rooms of the Grandmaster's Palace and the armoury museum with the same ticket. The other rooms are not open to the public.It is a very interesting site and worth a visit.

After my sister highly recommended we visit, I was a bit disappointed. A few rooms were closed and under reconstruction.
You receive an audio tour of the palace armoury included improve which is fine but the actual palace and rooms- I would have liked to see commentary so I knew what we were looking at and what went on in the rooms etc. worth a visit of your into armoury, they date back to 15th century which was interesting

It was nice to see the grand meeting rooms of the goverments of Malta and have a closer look to the armours, helmets and weapons of grandmasters and warriors but the excebition was small in my opinion.Some restoration was going on at the rooms and i think that's way we only had the chance to see so little.

Sometimes, rooms are closed due to presidential activities so it's worth checking this first as the building is very interesting with superb decorations on the walls and ceilings, showing the history of the Knights of St John and the Great Siege of 1565. The Armoury is also fascinating as a way into understanding military costume.

This could have been a very interesting visit - sadly the palace is being restored and only a restricted number of rooms were open. The armoury was interesting but we had been looking forward to seeing how and where the Grandmasters lived and it was disappointing.
