I cannot say how good this place is. The planes are great but what really moved me was the video which is about an hour long but really worth the wait. It is amazing what the people from Malta went through during ww2 and I...More

Museum is a labour of love for the volunteers. It was 15 years since we had last visited and was worth a repeat visit. We spent around 2 hours there and combined it with a visit to Mdina on a rainy morning.

I have visited museums all over and this small museum is up there with the best. Space is a premium and not all exhibits listed are visible but for any enthusiast this museum is a must. Friendly and knowledgeable staff Highly recommended

Somehow I would doubt it, the islanders are very religious and Easter is a very devout catholic festival.
