Fort St. Elmo occupies a strategic position at the tip of the Sceberras peninsula, keeping watch over the mouths of both the Grand Harbour and the Marsamxett Harbour. The fort houses the National War Museum. Artefacts are displayed in chronological order, commencing from the early phases of the Bronze Age around 2,500 B.C. Special reference is made to the role of Malta in the theatre of war and the contribution of the Maltese population to the war effort, particularly during the Axis’ onslaught of 1942. Also on display are three important icons of this museum: the Gloster Sea Gladiator N5520 FAITH, Roosevelt’s Jeep ‘Husky’ and Malta award for gallantry, the George Cross.
