    Who has time in Mdina should look at this private house. It runs through the rooms with audio guide and learns about life the family Falson, as well as the artist of Captain Gollcher, who lived in this House in the 19th century, certain that, after his death, the House as a public museum is accessible. There are many beautiful old details in the House, you can admire the premises, furniture, paintings but also armor and a kitchen. It's worth.

    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.

    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.

    Interesting, 19th century lifestyle of then rich and famous... not a must-do, but an interesting contrast to the standard church/museum scene
