Myself, partner and 10 year old arrived just after it opened at 10am. We bought a family ticket for €10. We went down some steps into the dungeon, which was split up into different rooms.

This is a remarkable attraction it tells you some of the history of Malta and what life was like years ago can be a little scary for children under 10 but other than that you cant not visit this amazing site.

This is NOT for the nervous.Situated below the Vilhena Palace,you learn about punishment from the Romans through the Arabs then the Knights of St John right up to the Napoleonic War.There are crucifixion,beheading,torture,executions,inquisition,imprisonment and the stocks.All these and there are appropriate sound effects too.The price was reasonable but you won't sleep that night!!

We visited this little gem on leaving the city my children aged 10 and 15 loved it. Sound effects and reenactments really good. Able to take pictures and left alone to explore

A good summary of Malta ' s gruesome history. Some scenes could do with smartening up, and refreshing.

Only cost €5 and you get what you pay for. Lots of info on the history of the island and Mdina which is good but the models were not scary at all and wasn't really what I was expecting.

I absolutely loved these dungeons so educational and interesting. The experience freaks you out when you realise this is what people had to endure.
