Malta At War Museum

The Malta at War Museum in Birgu, is undoubtedly Malta's best presented testimonial of the great ordeal suffered by the Island during the Second World War.

The site focuses on the daily life of wartime Malta telling the story of how this spec of an island managed to withstand one of the fiercest onslaughts in modern history.

It offers a unique experience to the visitor through a combination of original film-footage, expert guiding and much in the way of original artefacts and memorabilia, all of which are nicely presented in a new modern setting. The tour also includes a guided visit of the deep and vast rock-cut underground tunnel which used to serve as an underground civil defense centre for the Three Cities as well as an air raid shelter for hundreds of people.
