This is a brand new museum so the emphasis is on communicating clearly and simply a lot of information. It is laid out over 3 floors with a video presentation to start and then a step by step guide to the history of fortifications, not only in Malta but also how fort building evolved around the world. There are lots of examples of pre-historic forts in Malta, and the history of the islands is told through the buildings of the Ottoman Turks who inhabited the islands, then the Knights of St John who fortified Valetta and built look out towers around the coast. It moves on to the Victorian forts built by the British, and then the defences used during WW2. There are many models in different scales, and a lot of attention is given to the fortifications of Valletta and the Grand Harbour, as you would expect. We will be coming back with our friends and their children
