Pretty realistic models playing out torture scenes

Not for everybody. Little spooky with the pre recorded screaming in the background and the dummies displayed in all manner of torture sequences-5€ entrance fee.

Visited the place on 2.7. The displays and descriptions were rather unimpressive. Not worth going unless you have too much time to idle around.

This place is amazing, rather small, however shows a great presentation of history as it was. There is a minimal charge to enter but it is well worth the visit. Very educational.

Quite eerie but very informative, cheap entry and well worth a look! Only about 15/20 minutes needed and a lot of information available alongside realistic depictions of torture and imprisonment from various stages of the countries history.

Film show and waxworks cost 11 euro each .Very informative film and waxworks are great, you get your own headphones to hear it in your own language, all in all lasts about 40-50 mins

This was worth a visit but very realistic and a bit gruesome not for children as some of the exhibits can be frightening!

Well worth a visit, it is amazing what people did to each other & how people managed to survive. You do have to pay but it is not very much so try & go but do not take children in they may have nightmares.

These are an extra when visiting Mdina and easy to miss as they are just inside the main gate on the right. They are very theatrical and noisy but the history illustrated here is thought provoking and pretty horrific. OAPs can get a reduced rate.

It's a shame but we were very disappointed with this attraction. Not much there at all and very dated. I'm glad we went though as I have to see as much as I can, good or bad.
