Well worth visiting this beautiful and interesting house. Our only criticism would be the rooms could do with more information on their contents (a few more audio guide points or some written info plaques below artefacts). In any event, the house is worth a visit...More

We enjoyed touring the Palazzo Falson while on a visit to the walled city of Mdina, Malta. It was exciting to see a magnificent residence behind the plain walls that offer no clues to the wonders within. We spent about an hour in the palace,...More

In addition to being a medivval house in Mdina, there are intriguing exhibits from the former owner’s extensive collection. Wand activated audio guide uses touchpoints at each location. I enjoyed a slow wander including views from the rooftop. They offered a free locker to store...More

We came across this by chance and found it to be a most interesting property which was staffed by very friendly and helpful staff. Audio guides were provided. The exhibits were well displayed and varied and provided an insight into years gone by. Highly recommended.

A gem of a palace, crammed full of paintings, ceramics, furniture, antiquities and other fascinating artefacts. It’s been lovingly restored, and each room is enchanting. It’s not too grand either, so it’s one you could quite easily live in! Are sure you make for the...More

Not a bad little palace, it is rather a large house, located in the old town of Mdina. From the top floor there is a nice view to the rooftops of Mdina.

Very interesting historical items on display, from household items, armory, coins, and arts. The audio guide was helpful in explaining many things including the owner of the property. Beautiful property especially the inner courtyard. I recommend a visit to this museum during your visit to...More
