They tried doing something original just to complicate life! The sets of statues are full of dust, the headset is bulky and the numbers confusing in the dark. A maze of references but not much of a successful result. Not worth visiting if you would rather see the original gear the knights had at the palace Armory.

this would have been a far more interesting attraction had it been done in a more documentary fashion and did not keep fitting from one tableau still shot to another.

What an awfull time the Maltese had, we love to hear of the Knights of St John as we looked into their history in Greece where they were before landing in Malta

During our May holiday in Valletta, we visited the Great Siege of Malta Exhibition. This is another exhibition where, after you pay your entrance fee, you are given a handset to take round with you, and you press the relevant buttons on this at certain points through the course of the exhibits so that you get the history in your chosen language. The exhibits are mostly mannequins dressed in the appropriate attire of the time so it’s all a bit ‘waxworks’ like, but quite interesting and worth a visit.

However, if it’s busy, it can get a little crowded around the information points, and we found that the noise from one section of the exhibition actually drowned out the speech we were trying to listen to at an adjacent information point. If I remember correctly, the exhibition is closed on a Sunday.

A tourist in Malta must see this show.
It is like going to the cinema being told in all different languages the old history from 1565 when the Great siege took place. How the Ottomans tried to win over the Knights of St. Johns and little Malta. I always recommend friends arriving to see the show.
The place has also a wonderful view over the Grand Harbour, a small souvenir shop and a cafe serving cold drinks of coffee outside.I am sure you will like it
