Through beautiful imagery and a gripping commentary, The Malta Experience, the island’s premier audio-visual show has enthralled over 4 million visitors.

La Sacra Infermeria Tour

Malta’s Knights of St John are famous for repelling an invasion and their military exploits abroad. But their origins were actually those of peace and caring for the sick. This noble past is revealed on a tour of “La Sacra Infermeria” (Holy Infirmary).

St Elmo’s Kitchen

Indulge in the Mediterranean’s delightful flavours with our fresh variety of dishes and succumb to the temptation of our irresistible assortment of Maltese desserts and wines. All of this can be savoured while basking in the breathtaking panoramic views of Valletta’s Grand Harbour during a leisurely luncheon at St. Elmo Kitchen. Situated conveniently adjacent to Fort St. Elmo and at the entrance to The Malta Experience, it offers the perfect spot to satisfy your culinary desires and immerse yourself in a truly unforgettable dining experience.

A very enjoyable experience the film was very informative well put together kept your attention a good history of the island of Malta and the people who have come to the islands over the centuries. We found the whole film very uplifting and helped us with our visits around the island.

The Malta Experience is ‘s must do’, perhaps before doing anything else In Valetta. Tear jerking at times. The presentation is in so many languages so no-one misses out.


This very professional and exciting multi language movie show you the beginning of Malta and its glorious history. The theater is in the St. Elmo’s fortress which adds to the authenticity of the movie.
