A really good place to spend 30 minutes, you saw a different side to Malta's past that i had not seen shown previously in other exhibits on the island. The scariness of it made it good fun. I wouldn't recommend to small children, but teenagers up will love it! While not scary in comparison to that of a hainted house... More

Very educational but also fun. It was incredible to read about what had happened and see the very life like mannequins. Would recommend.

The only day of our week in Malta were we had showers on and off and it was good to go indoors out of the rain. The actual experience was a lot better than I imagined it was going to be be and had a lot of information and exhibits is a well thought out layout.

Our two teenagers loved this place. It is a good depiction of the harsh and terrible treatments prisoners were subjected to centuries ago. Gives one a different perspective to the beauty of the architecture of Mdina and the spectacular views from the city walls. We paid 10 Euros admission for two adults and two students.

The 3D film gAve an excellent overview of the history of the knights and the creation of Mdina. The wax work display was a mini Madame Tussaud's and was thoroughly enjoyed by all ages

This was not a very interesting stop. Lots of other choices are better than this. Perhaps young kids would find it interesting.

€5 for one adult. I spent about 25 minutes in here. Very informative and I learnt a lot about the more violent side of the history of Malta. I think the sound effects more than the models might freak out some children so be warned if yours are easily frightened I doubt they will enjoy this.
