  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great house - museum. Do not miss a thing with the very cool audio guide that gets you through the place on the voice of the owner.
