Valletta (, Maltese: il-Belt Valletta, Maltese pronunciation: [vɐˈlːɛtːɐ]) is the capital city of Malta. Located in the South Eastern Region of the main island, between Marsamxett Harbour to the west and the Grand Harbour to the east, its population in 2014 was 6,444, while the metropolitan area around it has a population of 393,938. Valletta is second only to Nicosia as the southernmost capital of Europe, and at just 0.61 square kilometres (61 ha), it is the European Union's smallest capital city.
Valletta's 16th-century buildings were constructed by the Knights Hospitaller. The city was named after Jean Parisot de Valette, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman invasion during the Great Siege of Malta. The city is Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture, though the Second World War left major scars on the city, particularly the destruction of the Royal Opera House. The city was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980.

I purchased the Valletta ticket which gave access to key museums and as a bonus, the Malta 5D experience for 20 euros for students (25 euros for adults). I didn’t have the highest of expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by the animations and brief history of Malta and its islands. Although some of it is quite excessively dramatic, I’d recommend it for kids. But whether I’d pay the full 9 euros for it, I’m undecided. As a plus, they did have free soft drinks whilst you wait and after the cinema experience.

A lot of PR and huge effort spent on advertising may set your expectations too high. The movie quality is suboptimal though. We didn't regret visiting the cinema but it is definitely nothing extraordinary or mind blowing. Safe to skip if you don't have much time.

Old Material with dated animations. Uncompelling story-telling that fails to give historical insight / satisfy action-seekers / or entertain the viewer of any age. My personal low point was the falcon during the air raid scene.

This was a good fun thing to do with my 11 year old son. We both enjoyed the experience and learnt a bit about Malta too. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a brilliant display, giving real in depth information about Malta. I would recommend it to any visitor to the Islands.

Great experience, even for the kids. This was a very good way to learn about the history of the island. The kids really enjoyed it, particularly the motion effects. Definitely worth a visit.

About 15 mins long, fuzzy 3d film with moving chairs, water spray, fans, and brushes to tickle the backs of your legs. Really high level history overview. Free soft drinks before hand, but not enough to justify the entrance fee.

An alright attraction, don't expect too much. You can drink as much as you like while waiting though.

A 20 minute overview of the history of Malta in a 5D environment. It is a fair place to start your understanding about Malta but being only 20 minutes they obviously can't go into detail. The 5D experience was a laugh and a fun bonus. It is fair to say that the auditorium did smell musty but that is to be expected if they're spraying water many times a day. Free drinks available for you to help yourself prior to the screening. Clean toilets. They advise not suitable for pregnant women or people with a bad back, however, there are seats which don't move. We got free tickets when we booked our holiday but I would have been disappointed if I'd have paid €45 for five people, I don't think that it was worth that. For children it was probably cheaper and they'd more than likely enjoy it. Don't miss taking photo of yourself as a knight opposite the drink station. Really helpful and friendly staff.

The quality of the film and technical equipment is not very impressive, staff nice and helpful, drinks available after the show, clean restrooms. I would not call it a must see attraction, but good activity in rainy weather

The chairs moved so it gets an extra star. This truly was a poor 30 min, save your money and time. Even if you get the heritage Malta ticked, just skip it. Kids may enjoy it 🤔

Went here because it was part of a multi ticket. However, it was lots of fun and very intersting. Good for kids or adults, the 3d genuinely makes you duck and the WW2 section was superb.

Well worth the visit very informative. I'd never been to a 5d experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would do it again.
