Directions to The Malta Experience
Located within Malta's capital Valletta and just off the historical Fort St. Elmo, The Malta Experience is a perfect introduction to Malta's extensive history. The purpose-built auditorium offers an entertaining audio-visual show that is as educational as it is gripping.
Covering 7,000 years of turbulent history, The Malta Experience takes you on a journey from prehistoric times, to the shipwreck of St. Paul, the Knights of St. John and the Great Siege, French occupation under Napoleon, British rule and the heavy toll on the island during the second world war, the country's independence, modern Malta and EU membership.
Opened in the 1980s, over four million visitors have already enjoyed this cultural attraction. The 45 minute show can be listened to in 16 different languages and is continuously being upgraded with the latest technologies.
While you're there, take the opportunity to purchase your souvenirs from The Malta Experience gift shop, which offers an extensive range of genuine souvenirs. Here you can find prints of traditional Maltese scenes, books elucidating Maltese history and culture, traditional local handicrafts (lace, silver, pottery and decorative glass), local-made liqueurs and Malta's very own perfume, all in one place.
Complete your very own 'Malta Experience' with a hot or cold snack from the Cafeteria, enjoy the lovely terrace with beautiful views of the Grand Harbour.
