It's very small but very cheap at 5 euros an adult. Was very interesting to learn a lot about capital punishment. It's worth a visit.

Was interesting to learn about the history of Malta, however some of the exhibits were a little on the gruesome side.... didn't take long to walk around, but for 5 euros couldn't really complain!

Visited the walled city of Mdina as you enter the gate the dungeons are right there on your right. Very good price and a great atmosphere when you went in. Plenty to read and lots of historical information. We all really enjoyed this attraction. The price was 5 Euros for an adult. Well worth it.

Very cheap attraction 10euros for 2 adults and 2 children, you go around and see all there is to see independently, which for us was quite good, you can stay as long as you wish, I would give this a thumbs up.

Entering the walled city of Mdina and encountering the peaceful old narrow streets gets you into the mood for something different. Turn right and the dungeons beckon (the stocks outside give a hint!). Plenty of fascinating exhibits with lots of informative plaques and occasional commentary, interspersed with haunting groans and shrieks. The skeleton in the suspended cage was particularly photogenic,... More

A dark atmosphere which embraces the dark nature of the place. The statues are frighteningly realistic and each torture scene is flanked with a panel filled with information. It's great for the gory history fanatic, but after awhile it all feels a little.... eh. Dont get me wrong, its a great place, but would be better if it had less... More

Gave this an average rating as I didn't like it, too gory. Mistook this for the Mdina Experience. However, there are probably lots who will love it. Graphic representations of torture, beheadings and plague! Not for the impressionable.

It was a very successful experience as the horizon waiting was quite different. We visited such museums in London and I thought were more interesting than here!
