“Gruesome and good value for money”
Review of Mdina Dungeons

Mdina Dungeons
Ranked #6 of 21 things to do in Mdina
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Need to be careful reviewing this place or add "spoiler alert" to the title. Not adding any pictures as it would give too much away.

In summary its a history of the dungeons and the prisoners held there along with reproductions of some treatments (and this is no spa!).

It does give warning that some may find it harrowing and some reproductions and accompanying tracks certainly could be.

We found it informative and would tell anyone to add this to the list when visiting Mdina.

Very interesting lots of manakins dressed in olden day dress. Lots of blood and injuries . A recording vocal about each scene. A tiny dungeon a prisoner had lived in for many many years. Its a wonder he didn't go mad in such a tiny cell.Lots of history to be seen and lots of heading above so u understand what the prisoners went through.I would say its an good experience and plenty of history to take in . Entrance fee £4 Euros.

It was cheap to get in (4 euros I think). It must have been a slow day because we had the whole place to ourselves which was brilliant. We really had a great laugh at all the gruesome waxworks. Kids will love it or be terrified.... or both.

This is a must for those with a taste for the macabre!! And of course for those of us who enjoy history. There are guide boards about the museum which detail the various tortures and history there related. We went round twice and photographed everything. Unfortunately they wouldnt let me take the stocks back for my Boss ! I would nt advise it as suitable for those of a nervous disposition or younger children. No time limit on visit.
