It is an old museum but it certainly is interesting and has many items on display. There a lot of boats and ships in display. For such a small country, Malta has some amazing museums and so much history.

Traditional museum with lots of very interesting artefacts, highlighting Malta's strategic importance in the Med and to the Royal Navy. Lots to see, covering all periods in history. Very close to the Grand Harbour, where it all happened! Loads of restaurants nearby.

Well worth a vist. One of the best museum attractions on the Island. Get the water taxi there and back from the shoreline near the cruise boats, a lot easier than the bus. A must for history buffs.
