An experience unlike any other, Malta 5D in Valletta is a fully immersive audio and visual show that takes the audience on a journey through the history and culture of Malta. Over the course of 20 minutes, you are taken back in time to witness the events that shaped the history of the island archipelago, from the formation of prehistoric temples to the victory of the Knights of Malta at the Great Siege of 1565 to Malta’s heroic efforts during World War II. These stories are experienced through special effects including moving seats, air blasts, water sprays, leg ticklers and 3D imagery. 3D glasses are provided upon arrival and automated multilingual devices in 17 languages are provided for multilingual shows. Temporary exhibitions about Malta are often on display in the lobby of the theater.
Malta 5D is close to Valleta’s main entrance and is a short walk from the main bus station, the ferry boat terminal or from Castille Square, where the hop-on, hop-off buses stop. The show is not recommended for pregnant women or people with high blood pressure, epilepsy, vertigo, motion sickness or other conditions that might be aggravated by the show. Of 74 seats in the theater, 64 are moving, although they can be made non-moving upon request.
