“Stuff, stuff and more stuff”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

A wonderful museum full of art and artifacts that are well presented in an intimate and charming space. Well worth a visit with helpful (rather than the traditionally taciturn) guides.

“the best museum in Malta!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

A beautifully curated small museum containing art and decorative objects acquired by one family, all of a very high standard and quality. Very good signage and audio guide, and many helpful docents to answer any questions one might have. What a joy!

“Interesting old palazzo in Mdina”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Found this place by accident really. The curator on the welcome desk made it sound so interesting that we decided we should give it a look. Bit expensive to get in but when you consider the restoration on the building and all the items the owner had collected in his lifetime, it's not that bad really. The audio guide is really handy as it guides you round and you can stop and interact with many of the paintings and other items room by room (don't miss the little infra red detectors next to various exhibits!) In the end, we were so engrossed, the staff had to hurry us round as they were closing up at 5PM!

“Fine new attraction in Mdina”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is a marvellous addition to Mdina's attractions since our last visit to Malta some 15 years ago. In one of the oldest buildings in Mdina the Maltese Heritage Foundation has restored beautifully the fabric of the building as well as the furnished rooms and the collections within. Not expensive to enter and the free audio guide gives just the right amount of information for the average visitor. An added bonus is the rooftop café - lovely views and appetising light snacks. Not to be missed if you are in Mdina (which is a must if in Malta.
