    Worth visiting.
    Nice museum.and lovely cathedral. All staff friendly and helpful. The museum has some lovely pieces. The cathedral has very beautiful stained glass windows. The main altar paintings depict Paul's conversion to Christianity on the road to Damascus.

    Some wonderful items
    The ticket €10 covers the cathedral and Museum with the ticket purchased at the Mdina Cathedral Museum opposite the cathedral side door. The museum is of the older standard format of treasures and significant artifacts in glass cabinets with short descriptions of each. Some wonderful items of furniture, extensive collections of silver items especially the 15 silver statues and a large number of religious paintings gathered over the centuries from houses and churches around Malta.

    Well worth a visit.
    You need time to view this museum and the cathedral - so give yourself plenty! Originally a seminary, it was turned into a museum in the 1960's. There are engravings by Albrecht Duerer, a large selection of paintings from all over the world, decorative arts, furniture, silver and more.....

    Cool museum with collection of Italian Baroque music
    Built as a Jesuit seminary, this museum is across from the St Paul Cathedral. It has a number of treasures including the oldest bell in Malta from 1370. There were underground vaults which were free, but there wasn't much in them. There are some nice paintings here as well.

In the summer of 2023 - when visiting Malta - we also payed a visit to the city of Mdina, and one of the main attractions is the St. Paul Cathedral (see in another review), but beside the St. Paul Cathedral one shall find also the Mdina Metropolitan Cathedral Museum.
Located in a Baroque style building/palace on the right hand side of the St. Paul square/Arch Bishop square .... it is hosting exhibits ranging from the religious/catholic repertoire , through music and paintings (Mattia Preti, Albrecht Durer, etc.)
Also there is a dedicated room, to the national poet of Malta, Dun Karm Psaila , he wrote the national anthem of Malta (and was a catholic priest who lectured at the Mdina seminary) ... so it is also an interesting immersion in the history of Malta.
Overall a great museum, you can purchase a combo ticket - with the Cathedral - and definitely worth 1-2 hours of your time , if you are interested in history and arts.

Walking to get in to the cathedral we found this place as it’s where to buy the cathedral tickets! Nice that the museum is included in the price, as I find €10 p/p too much for a church visit.

This museum is right opposite the cathedral and I found it moe interesting than I thought I would. We only really went in because theres not really that much to do in Mdina.
I would never take the horse rides or anything else that uses animals.

The museum has the medieval altarpiece from the cathedral before it was destroyed in earthquake is here, showing life of Saint Paul. Extraordinary work, in beautiful condition. Wonderful Maltese furniture. Great silver statues that were rescued from Napoleon when he wanted to melt them down. Many good paintings. Good decorative arts, too.
