  • Amazing. This is Fort St. Angelo in Birgu and it is full of amazing pieces of history. Make sure to explore the air raid shelter. You won't be disappointed.
  • Really great museum, I would recommend anybody visits it - the exhibition has some amazing information and myself as a fan of WW2 could spend hours reading about all of the action Malta saw. I can't stress how interesting the history of the bay is. My girlfriend doesn't enjoy WW2, however she still thought this was interesting and liked the exhibits. Everybody will find something interesting for themselves. The underground tunnels are the cherry on top of the cake, as one can easily transfer himself to the realities of the war. My favourite museum on Malta!
