We spent a very pleasing 45 mis at the slightly bizarre Knights of Malta interactive experience. It is a very reasonable price and as long as you can suspend disbelief and the earnestness of the owners on the event potentially being life changing the rather iffy waxworks and dodgy audio commentary in the end were quite entertaining - and we...

The film was very interesting both for adults and childern , will surely help in the history exams. The house is very characteristic and well kept

3D movie is too old and poor quality. Excursion was weird, audio wasn't working properly. History about Mdina was fine.

We were undecided whether to book both the Mdina experience as well as the Knoghts of Malta. Fortunately we did. The 3-D presentation was well done, background music not too loud, interesting comentary. We would have been happy to leave at the end of it, but then we would have missed the excellent set pieces, illustrating various times and events... More

When visiting the lovely little island of Malta one must pay homage to the Knights of Malta. This is truly a must see for history buffs and anyone interested in cultural development.

Starts with a picture show then a wee tour all with headphones so in your preferred language. €6.50 per adult €3 per child. Worth it if you like to hear the history of the Knights.

The Knights of Malta was very interesting and covered an enormous amount of history very understandably - it made us realise how important this tiny island is in the history of Europe.

Possibly a bit pricey for what it was but it was a great way to learn about the knights of Malta, and everyone who comes to Malta should know their story. It's quite amazing. Starts with a 3D film which is interesting and informative but terrible quality projection. We all ended our closing one eye to watch in 2D as... More

Personally I would not bother, one audio guide was intermittent and out of sync with the wax exhibits. The second one stopped working completely half way through the walk. We purchased a joint ticket with the Medina experience, however we did not manage this due to technical difficulties. Ended up wasting a couple of hours waiting for them to fix... More
