This is a must see attraction. The rooms are lavish and very ornate. And the history behind them is fascinating. The admission price includes an audio guide that provides interesting information on the various rooms.

The Armoury is outstanding which is lucky because that was the only part of the Palace open when we were there in February. If you want to see the progression of armour and weapons through three centuries this is the place to go. Helpful descriptions...More

One cannot get a real feel for what the Knights of St. John did for Malta without visiting this place. Full of history.

As previously stated there is a lot of history here and some aspects are more interesting than others. For me not as interesting as I would have like.
