We have seen this advertised for a while now but avoided going, not sure we fancied it so, on a cold and windy afternoon in Valletta, we decided to try it – an excellent choice!
Follow the signs, just down a side street off the main avenue, turning right at the junction with the memorial statue high up on the corner building. There is a show every half an hour and well worth the €9 each. Cinema seats are joined as blocks of four, a huge screen with 3D glasses and a recorded commentary set to your own language, all set for the adventure.
Brilliant sound effects, visuals, moving seats and the shaking boom of guns or bombs. You feel the spray of water as a person on-screen dives into the sea, and the suggestion of a light touch at the back of your legs as a huge snake slithers off the screen!
It is an informative potted history of Malta from ancient times to the present, carefully thought-out and a fascinating experience of a journey through time (but not if you are pregnant, have epilepsy or a bad back!), and particularly entertaining on a grey afternoon. We need to see the other History of Malta experience to see how different they are from each other.
