The Dungeons are a cold, dark, sinister place with various scenes depicting just how wicked humans can be. Some of the models are startlingly realistic, adding a whole extra dimension to the visit (some of the torturers look evil, others regretful).

The Dungeons were a last minute decision, we were heading out of MDina when the place caught our eye. It's only €5 admission and a glimpse into the bloody history of Malta.

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.

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.

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.
