St. Elmo Pl. | Fort St Elmo, Valletta, Island of Malta VLT 1741, Malta
My boyfriend is a history and WOII buff, which is why I kind of just tagged along to Fort St. Elmo. However, once in the museum, I was pleasantly surprised! Very nice set-up, good and relevant information and superb location. Would really recommend this one!
Well laid out, located in a fort dating back centuries that played a key military role as recently as WW2. Their exhibits cover the history of conflict involving the island from its early days to WW2, as well as Malta’s more recent history to present...More

To get into the forts moat, do as follows. When you passed the duck area, follow the way up to the small gate, then you go down left towards to the officearea...follow the shore, it is a little bit rocky...but keep going on 100-200 meters, on right hand side you have an non official entrance through the stonewall, there you can go into the moat. There are an other way also, when you passes the small gate turn right, and follow it uphill via the path, when you are at uphills top, turn left and follow the steep side gently...go a few meters..you see a stonestaircase leading down or up, depends on which way you get in. Go down there, and you are in the moat. Down in the moat at the walls are small entrances in to the wall...you can go in there but you need a flashlight, because it is very dark. It was really interesting and fun, it as almost like an old adventure game called "Guild of Thieves" from 1987, you can this game on the net. Good luck.
