The museum houses a variety of items, including some coins. Quite interesting overall and the staff is also friendly and helpful. At €10 per adult, I think this is well worth a visit when you are in Mdina.

Well worth visiting if you are in Mdina. It uses one of the best audio tours I have experienced - no entering numbers - it has a discrete reader as you walk around the house but also each audio track is just the right length...More
