Mdina Dungeons

Great attraction, reasonably priced, and suitably gory. Great for young children and those who like to see the more bloody side of Malta. Just wish it was a bit bigger.

Fun, packed with information, scary at times and life like with the smells. The presentation of the whole thing is excellent, loads of information and so cheap! Well worth a visit, some truly horrific scenes.

Great and well organized history of Malta and interesting details on the city of Mdina. During lunch hours is emptier and more enjoyable. I suggest using te translated texts and audios provided.

Went to the Mdina dungeons and really really enjoyed it. Lots of facts and history set in an eerie underground that adds fantastically to the experience . A must do when in Malta and not expensive either.

If you go to Mdina, it is worth visiting the dungens which are near the entrance, it is about the inquisition of Malta in mediaval times.if you have small kids they will be scared, so I don't reccomand for small children.

This place gives an interesting look at the barbaric times in Malta's history, but not very big and expensive for what's there

If you are interested in a bit of a history, this place shows you how people used to be tortured and humiliated in public. You can see old masks, ropes, knives and this stuff. Not sure it is great for children.. can be a bit too much. Pass by if you intend to go visit Mdina.

On reflection this was a little too gruesome for our youngest (4yr old) but she took it in her stride. I don't think if we knew what was inside we'd take her in! It was loved by our 9yr old boy. Full of torture and blood!
