  • Fabulous. Great museum. Highlight of the day. You can actually touch the planes. Sit into a cockpit. Lots of planes for such a small museum. Well done. Make sure you don't miss the bus or get a taxi from M'Dina.
  • Absolutely loved it here!! Such a great museum. Me and my partner had loads of fun and really learnt a lot about the history of Malta. We spent a good 2-3 hours there as there is a little movie you can watch in one of the areas. I strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Malta however it is very out of the way and public transport can be a bit tricky sometimes.
