    This place is like a Tardis, vast space inside. Well kept cars probably in running order. I spoke to the owner who personally drives the display racing car every day. It is parked outside the building and is bright blue. To find the museum just look for that car.

    A place not to be missed.

    This is a superb museum, which is not very large but has not only interesting exhibits but also some very moving related human interest aviation stories. I also never realised that early seaplanes were actually built in Malta, for example. However, be aware that we were charged 20 Euros for a taxi ride from Mdina to Takali which should have been 11 Euros. We discovered that there was board at the car park next to the entrance to Mdina gate that showed the standard taxi fares. Apart from this slight rip off, it was a wonderful visit. You can then catch a 56 bus back to Valetta

    This is historically important and strangely interesting but not masses to see. Lots of bones, hippos dear and other animals, and informative explanation.

    We stayed in the area. Was well worth a visit, contributions taken. You could see that they were adding to what was there, but not worth travelling to. If staying again would revisit.

    I enjoyed this museum visit after the grotto visit. Well displayed and information available. Current exhibition was of local artists (paintings, mosaics, carvings etc). Enjoyed.

    Visited this Baby Jesus museum with a bit of reservations, but I was so impressed with the professionalism of the way this family have exhibted these statues of all shapes, sizes, colour etc. Not one is like the other. Their life is surrounded around this museum and they have travelled far and wide, making sure that their travels take them to places where they can purhase more states, irrelevant of the size or age. You see one but forget the one you previously saw. Worth a visit especially during Christmas time as it would flow with the time of the year. The couple are there at hand waiting to give you any information you request.
    I enjoyed it and hope you will too.
    A tiny extra information - there are about 7 steps (a little on the high side) till you get to the museum, but worth it!

    This was the highlight of our day in Mdina. Although heavily restored there is plenty of atmosphere and the collection of furniture and objects we found very interesting. The cafe at the top of the building is worth going to for itself alone - good refreshments with fabulous views over rooftops to the cathedral and over the ramparts to the open country beyond.

    A fascinating small museum with unique exhibits of the fascinating history of Malta. A bit dated but very worthwhile. Do this early in your visit.

    Calling in to this small museum in a very hot and sunny morning we were initially just happy to escape the heat for a few moments.
    Due to the really friendly and knowledgeable man in charge we began to appreciate what a treasure trove of artefacts we had stumbled across. He obviously loved his exhibits and had a few rooms absolutely crammed with all sorts of bits and pieces some religious but others from the local area and of local interest.
    Truly a labour of love.

    Here they organise get-together for the boys and their parents that attend the Museum ta’ Paola and Santa Luċija were they can meditate, play games and other entertainment for all the family. Even they organise food to eat together and chat with each other.

    A must visit if you are around Zabbar, great history and historical artifacts including the bits from the Vulcan bomber airplane that crashed on zabbar back in 1975, and since the referb of the place all items are displayed amazingly, well done to all who keeps this place in this amazing order.

    Not an historian, I was taken back in time by the owner to a world of wonders. This visit, I will always remember, thinking of Malta.

    This is an engaging museum and not just for the philatelist. The personal stories around the history of the postal service in Malta are what makes this a really interesting visit. And staff are absolutely welcoming too. Highly recommended.

    Yet another beautiful church in Malta. This one also being in a wonderful setting not too far within the walled area. Entrance is free and once inside it is so peaceful that it is worth sitting for a few moments to soak up the atmosphere before exploring it. The light blue colours raises the sense of feeling inside.
