This museum gives you a good idea as to what daily life was like on Gozo in years gone by.. it is on various floors of the old house so there is quite a lot of walking up and down stairs. Definitely worth a visit.

One of the few remaining buildings within the Citadel. Worth a visit though it'll only take a while if you get lost in the maze of rooms!

Dealing with different aspects of Gozoan life over the last few hundred years, it is interesting place to wander around if your legs are good - you are up and down a lot of uneven stairs.
