National War Museum

Fittingly hosted by the majestic Fort St Elmo, overlooking both the Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour, the National War Museum houses a superb collection of items that traces the military history of the Maltese islands from prehistoric times up till nowadays. A section of the museum is also dedicated to recent political events including Malta’s Independence, becoming a Republic, Freedom Day and Malta joining the European Union.

Artefacts within this museum are displayed in chronological order, commencing from the early phases of the Bronze Age around 2,500 B.C. On display within its many halls one can find perhaps the three most important icons of this museum: the Gloster Sea Gladiator N5520 FAITH, Roosevelt’s Jeep ‘Husky’ and Malta award for gallantry, the George Cross.
