Not bad.

5 euros each wasn’t too bad. It’s an ok way to pass half an hour. It wasn’t overcrowded and not... read more

A no holds barred display of torture from the middle ages, quite gruesome but realistically put together and worth a visit to see how barbaric people were in the past

If you are off a nervous nature then avoid this place it is a very graphic history of the evil way the islanders of Malta were treated by invading forces

A good walk through history and an inside to the how we treated prisoners which was not very nice. The dungeons are the original ones to the castle and were used for the torture and execution of prisoners and by reading the information boards just people they didn't like very much !!!

Props were very basic, no movement, just over acted sound effects, good for kids but anyone who has been to a proper dungeon museum will hate this.

On the basis that it was only 5euros to get in I decided to give it a go, to be honest it wasn't that great. If you are expecting something to the standard of The London Dungeons than you will be disappointed but if you have the time and don't mind spending the money then as part of the city visit its worth a look.

The tour takes you round various tableau showing how people were imprisoned and tortured but the sound effects were a bit weird especial the constant playing of a baby crying that didn't seem to relate to anything in particular.

Just about worth 5 euros but if your in a rush then don't think your missing anything if you don't get round to it.
