Nothing is better known that the Siege of Malta - Voltaire Right he was!
The Great Siege Diorama at the Great Siege Events Museum tells the story of the Great Siege of Malta 1565, when the near-invincible Ottomans tried to conquer tiny Malta. Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, the exalted Emperor of the Ottomans, thought that Malta would be a stepping-stone to conquer the whole of Europe.
Instead in urned out to be stumbling block for his expansionist ambitions. The Great Siege Diorama presents this story in captivatio life-size scenes, adorned with period-costume figures and enhanced with audio and video. The Great Siege Events Museum is a non-boring cross-over between a museum and an attraction. It is irresistibly entertaining too. Parental guidance advised for the smaller children, as there might be some 'scary' scenes.
The Great Siege is availble in ten languages by means of audio-guides.
