  • The house was very interesting and provided some details of how the former inhabitants lived. For me the most fascinating element was the embellishment of the ceilings in the upstairs rooms.  more »
  • The owner of this house liked to collect all kinds of things from ancient pottery to muskets to silver platters, and each is displayed in a different room of a great old house.  more »
  • Really nothing special and definitely no worth of 10euros. Very small museum. I would not reccomend it ...  more »

  • 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.
