In need of a tidy up but a lovely museum for those who are interested in the islands history. Lots to see for the money, however opening times are loose. Worth a look if you are staying in Gharb!

The Folklore Museum in Gharb is a private museum located in what must be one of the prettiest and least spoilt villages on Gozo. Gharb is a stone’s throw from San Lawrenz, close by the Azure Window on the west coast. It’s a 15-minute bus ride from Rabat (Victoria) to the village, and the bus drops you right opposite the...

A rabbit warren of a place- this museum is inside the citadel, but the exhibits themselves are pretty low key- it is the structure and interior of the house I enjoyed the most.

If you want to wind down and get out of the heat, get a glimpse of old days past, then this place is a must see. There are Overy 25 rooms all done up to represent various ways of life back in time when electricity was not yet discovered, and all was done manually. Great wake up call to today's... More

Managed to visit on a quiet day and were really surprised at this fantastic little museum. Visit for its personality, dusty corners and genuine passion for its own history, that this little house has to offer. Keep an open mind and take it for what it is. We loved it. Don't change a thing!!!

The museum, a unique attraction in the quaint village of Gharb! The antique items on display in this museum compliment the characteristics of this old village on the furthest western end of Gozo. With typical traditional tools and historic items related to the past centuries.
