Quick Great Visit!

While everything is a plastic or a mannequin the little tid-bits of history were so informative. I read every stop and and sign. Truly enjoyable experience.

Right upon entering the walled city, you can turn and pay 5 EU to enter the dungeons. It is a wax like museum of all types of tortures used in previous times by the various inhabitants of Mdina, mainly the Catholics. It was about 8 small rooms and a courtyard filled with gore. Interesting, but nothing to write home about.... More

I believe the adult rate is 5 Euros, but the student rate is only 2 Eu which is well worth it. Takes roughly half an hour to go through it all, quite dark and musty as you'd expect. Interesting but wouldn't go again.

This place gives a brief information about the period of St. John and then type of punishments along side with some experiences here in Malta. It is very interesting and very well designed wax figures that makes it so real.

So we got the student price ticket at 2euro. This dungeon is right next to the gates of Mdina. I've taken a photo of the info you can check the photo. The tour was good. The wax were quite scary as it's very close to you 😥 there's a board beside every wax to explain the story of what happened.... More

This was so much fun and very interesting. The figures are very well done and the history is done so well you don;t even realise you are learning.

The dungeons are a must see for anyone visiting Mdina. But it's not for younger children or those who are easily upset. But terrific value and a really authentic experience

The dungeons depict what happened in past times, some of which is pretty gruesome. Unlike dungeons in the UK, there are no people dressed up to spook you out.... Cost is 6 euros per person.

When you go to mdina you must visit the mdina dungeons museum. It shows what happened in medieval era. It has chambers which show how people were tortured.

I did actually mention this dungeon in my Mdina review already. Worth visiting to see how peopele can ve cruel to each other. It seems that whoever ruled, they used the same horrible methods. Whatvåver the religion or nationlaity, the rulets ruthlessly got rid of their enemies.
