  • Tucked away at the very heart of Mdina, Palazzo Falson is not to be missed. One can go back in time and let one's imagination run wild in the charming and delightful ambience of this unusual museum. T...  more »
  • Superb House that we visit using a miniature hearing aid light and very powerful. Just point a Panel in each room to get in his native language, concise explanations on the objects it contains. Emphasis is placed on the finest pieces from the collections of the former owner and we don't get lost in the details as in other museums. Kitchen, bedroom, office, library, patio... this Palace House offers a glimpse of what could be life in Mdina in centuries past. A free locker to leave his bag in a locker at the reception.

  • Shortly before 16: 00 (last admission to the Palazzo is 16:00), we could visit the Palazzo. An audio guide is included in the ticket price which is very convenient. The Palazzo is widely distributed on several sticks. In the enter the kitchen and the upper storeys, one feels transported to the time of the Crusaders. Very worth seeing are the collections (weapons, jewellery, paintings, etc.). Worth a visit in the Palazzo Falson in any case.

  • Beautiful collection in one of the oldest houses in Mdina. The audio tour explains the different rooms and highlights certain items in the collection. The entry fee of 10 Euro is a bit steep but worth it if you are interested in seeing this old house as well as the paintings, jewelery, coins, snuff boxes, furniture, carpets, books and many more things contained within it's walls.
  • Most beautifull castle I've seen so far!
  • Did not go in, still love its vibe.
  • Interesting, 19th century lifestyle of then rich and famous... not a must-do, but an interesting contrast to the standard church/museum scene
  • Just beautiful museum. Do not miss it if you come to Mdina.
