Hailing from Edinburgh and having visited the Edinburgh Dungeons with our kids, I made the mistake of thinking Mdina Dungeons would be similar - they weren't. For one thing the Edinburgh Dungeons attraction is more about scary fun than anything else, and while the story telling is historically accurate for the most part, its in a setting that was never used for the purpose of incarceration and torture. The Mdina dungeons on the other hand is a historical account of what can only be described as periods of utter barbarity in Malta's history.
Each divided area is accompanied by information boards detailing the events, personalities, and the favourite methods of hideous execution, limb removal and eyeball gouging. No quick lethal injection with this bunch. The information provided is actually very interesting and encouraged me to look further into the events when I got home. I was actually hoping in a way that the Mdina Dungeons had exaggerated for effect, they don't.
Not for the squeamish, but certainly well worth a visit and since its to the right of the main gate when you enter Mdina, then its easy to find. If I had a recommendation though its for the person in the ticket office to ask idiots like me who have failed to do any homework, if they really want to include their child.
