The National War Museum, housed within the fortified walls of Fort St. Elmo, exhibits a superb collection of artefacts. Displayed in a chronological manner, these artefacts narrate the military history of Malta from the early phases of the Bronze Age, around 2,500 B.C. when the first inhabitants arrived from Sicily, to Malta’s EU Accession in 2004.
Perhaps the three most important artefacts on display are the Gloster Sea Gladiator N5520 FAITH, Roosevelt’s Jeep ‘Husky’ and Malta’s award for gallantry, the George Cross.
