Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha

3.6
#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Malta
Today a family-entertainment complex, the collection of colorful rustic buildings that make up Popeye Village Malta served as the set for the Walt Disney feature film "Popeye" (1980), starring Robin Williams. The coastal village, consisting of 19 wooden buildings, took a crew of 165 over seven months to construct. Explore the town where the sailor searched for his long lost father, watch clips of the movie at the on-site theater, and take in a live performance with some of the Popeye series' best-loved characters. Visitors can take a boat trip around scenic Anchor Bay, weather permitting. Adults can visit the winery to claim a complimentary glass of wine. Put Popeye Village Malta on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Mellieha sightseeing planner.

  • Everyone knows that this village was actually the movie set for the 1980s movie Popeye. However they have made a popular tourist attraction out of this. Some of these include a waterpark and a hotel.....  more »
  • I would say this place is good for kids ..the village set is good ,as in the way it was built on a hill, but most of the buildings are closed and you can only see through the window..they is a room...  more »

  • We were out of season and probably a lot better when it's summer but it was still great 😁😁 we made a short film with the team that was on the square with us, crazy fun 😂😂 Admission is paid 10 euros. You get a free postcard, pictures and movie popcorn. If you want that movie you shot whit team then 5 euros extra and there is a movie premiere you shot. Great for fun, adults and kids. Recommendation 😁
  • This is a theme park based on the set of a 1980 Popeye movie with Robin Williams in one of his early roles. After the filming, it was turned into a very family friendly theme park that I can very much recommend to families and adults who have a love of good ole Popeye and Olive Oil. In winter, make sure to be there shortly before closing. You will get to see a most spectacular sunset. Overall, the location is just sensational.
