The Malta Experience

The Malta Experience is an audio-visual show that tells the dramatic story of the islands’ 7000 year history. Educational, informative and entertaining, the show runs through the turbulent history of a small island nation that has overcome almost unimaginable odds to survive and prosper.  With its beautiful imagery and atmospheric sound, The Malta Experience will enrich your appreciation of the country’s places and people. It will give you a deeper understanding of the history to be found in Malta’s many magnificent landmarks, such as the ancient prehistoric temples of Malta’s stone-age settlers, the silent city of Mdina and the awe inspiring fortressed walls of Valletta, which have repelled one invasion after another.

One of the island’s most popular tourist attractions, the show has enthralled over 4 million visitors. Told in 17 languages, The Malta Experience is the perfect first stop on a cultural and historical tour of the islands.

To further engage the visitor into the island's history, a fully guided tour of the Mediterranean Conference Centre is also available. This purpose-built building was constructed by the Knights of St John and was known as "La Sacra Infermeria", the Holy Infirmary and is one of the most imposing buildings of Valletta. The tour is ably narrated by knowledgeable guides that immerse the visitor into the charted history of this grand building.
