We came across this by chance and found it to be a most interesting property which was staffed by very friendly and helpful staff. Audio guides were provided. The exhibits were well displayed and varied and provided an insight into years gone by. Highly recommended.

A gem of a palace, crammed full of paintings, ceramics, furniture, antiquities and other fascinating artefacts. It’s been lovingly restored, and each room is enchanting. It’s not too grand either, so it’s one you could quite easily live in! Are sure you make for the...More

This "palace" is interesting to walk through, if only to see the various items being displayed. Some are very impressive and with great artistic value. The silver boat displayed in the silver case in the stairwell is one example, as are some paintings. But, despite...More

Excellent small museum in a former private house in Mdina, itself an exquisite gem of a town. Very good free audio guide and welcoming helpful staff. Don't miss it!
