This is a small museum within the conference centre of the knights of Malta, in Valletta. The Blurb for this reads“Beneath the ‘Sacra Infermeria’, beside the historic Fort St Elmo, you will discover the chivalrous world of the Hospitaller Knights. 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.”

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.

This is quite an interesting tour to take if you have the time. For us it was quite a learning experience. The Knights of the Order of St John, or Knights Hospitallers, were a very old religious order who were dedicated to defending Christianity but...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.
