All reviews air raid shelter george cross audio guide well worth a visit hard hats bombing raids fort rinella saluting battery underground bunker real sense fascinating insight brought home great displays entrance fee recent history interesting place daily life
The Museum was well kept and very informative. There were many points of interest and as I had my 10 year old granddaughter with me, we learned alot after touring the museum. Especially enjoyed the WWII underground.
The museum is located where Malta was bombed the most in WWII. The underground shelter is a reminder of how terrible war is. Make sure to wear the hard hat when you visit the shelter as it’s not that something might fall on your head,...More

Thank you for your visit and review. But I find it very odd that you have found our entrance fee at €12 expensive. Our museum is run by an independent charity which relies on its own funding. There would certainly be no museum to visit...More
Close to the bus stop of Riche, near the gate into the old city, there's this museum.
It has a lot of stuff (clothes, weapons, tools, etc.) and multimedia material (video, maps, plates) related to the World War II in Malta.
I think that the...More

Thank you for your visit and review but in saying that eth entrance fee to this museum is expensive because you found it small is very unfair. Have you visited the enormous underground air raid shelter under this museum for instance which is fully conserved...More
Full of history and very interesting the Museum is well worth a visit. See how the Island responded and reacted to WWII. The bravery, courage and resilience is shown through exhibits, artefacts, displays and of course the underground tunnels. Had a refreshing cold drink and...More
If you enjoy history, especially the military variety this will indeed strike a chord. Great exhibitions, informative and thought provoking. Tells you a lot about that small island and its colorful history.
A very interesting place to visit. So many things to see and learn about our beloved island Malta, during the war times. Perfect tour of the museum and shelter, with the guidance of the well organised tour guidance Ms. Ruth Muscat. The details and the...More
This museum showcases Maltas involvement in WWII using great collections of historic memorabilia, video, sound and walks you through the incredible labyrinth of underground tunnels used as bomb shelters. We did the self guided audio tour which was comprehensive and allowed us to move at...More
A comprehensive museum takes you from the rise of Italian fascism to the first bombing raids through to the tide turning as finally Sicily is overrun by the Allies and the bombing raids ease. The rations the local population were expected to live on are...More

The top part of the museum is suitable for people with mobility problems, but the Air Raid Shelter, because of its caractheristics, is not for them. But just the part of the museum is amazing enough for a visit. You can spend a lot of time there, with all the information on touchscreens, different boards, etc. All the original uniforms, badges, flags, videos, and also a small e creation of the shelter where you are able to feel like during an air raid...
Hope this will help you a bit
