“Torture and beheadings”
Review of Mdina Dungeons

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

The Mdina Dungeons is located in the city of Mdina, and it was an interesting experience with a very explicit display of torture methods, executions, diseases and the like from thousands of years of Maltese history.
I wouldn't recommend visiting with smaller children - our eight year olds found it a little frightening, which shortened our visit a bit, but it was certainly a relevant insight in the subject.

This is certainly a must to visit if you like the macabre and bloody history of the inquisition and torture in the medieval periods

Loved it! As you will if you love all things gruesome and macabre. The creators looked like they had fun making it as realistic as possible.

However, it's also a fascinating insight into how Malta has been continually colonised, exploited and fought over, and what its people have had to endure over the centuries, which is shocking in itself. Good value and worth a visit if you're not faint-hearted.

Came here in early April. Before visiting I was wondering how much it would cost but when we arrived it was a nice surprise it was only 4 euros. In the UK they would probably have it at double that. I was also surprised that you could take photos because you probably couldn't in the UK. So yeah over all it is a great little visit

Not for young children, It's interesting to see and read about the crime and punishments of times gone by. People were so cruel. Several gruesome ways to inflict pain and torture.
