Wander in an authentic site and relive and experience a past golden age. Now, you can go back in time through sights, sounds and smells – from the Crusades to the Great Siege, the glorious Hospital and the Plague. Travel across 700 years of history, of the Knights of St John.”

Definitely a must do in Valletta to better understand what the order of Saint John was all about. Anna our guide is quite the storyteller and I could almost smell the garden that is long gone by now. Be careful for the ticket price though,...More

It is impressive how this building had a role to play in such a great extent of Malta's history. Go for me, you'll read many things you didn't even imagine (if you're not a historian)

A rather unremarkable building from the exterior which lends itself to a time warp of how hospitals were run in the days of knights, nobility and the poor. Currently used as a Conference Centre for visiting dignitaries and Eu gatherings. Rather bland but the history...More

Visited at the second attempt as arrived just before closing the first time. The entrance fee is only 5 euros and in our opinion well worth it. There is mainly only one room which is full of dioramas and manikin figures. Be sure to read...More

This is an interesting display, both for the general history of Malta, and more particularly the role the Knights played in providing health facilities for the island. Worth an hour or two.

Very interesting to see the scale of the hospital building and to hear about the different levels and their uses. The guide was very informative and helpful. Would certainly recommend a visit, you can also do the Malta Experience at the same time as it...More

I found this tour very interesting. It can be purchased separately or with The Malta Experience. We went later in the day and the wax works area was closed by 4.00. This was disappointing . Not sure if this is everyday so worth checking.
