This is an interactive museum not just a walk around static exhibits (although there are some around the fort) and this makes it so much more interesting. You will need to spend most of the day to see it all. We arrived about 11am and left about 3.45 and then missed some and we were never bored at any time. We took the bus (no,3 I think ) from Valetta and I think the fort is the last stop- look for the flags at the entrance as this a low profile fortification not a Norman castle. Also the buses can be up to 15 mins early. There were various displays during the day given by the very enthusiastic and informative staff members-all in uniform of the period. You can get to shoot a Martini Henry rifle (as in Zulu) with blanks of course, for a donation of 5 euros and later a Napoleonic era cannon for 10 euros and where else can you do that and also see a 100 ton gun. You also get to handle swords, spears and armour for no cost. The price of admission is very reasonable for all that you get to see and do. Please make a donation for the upkeep of the horses if you can.
