5 euros each wasn’t too bad. It’s an ok way to pass half an hour. It wasn’t overcrowded and not really scared at all, but then again I am a 50 year old man. Free toilets in there (just in case)

Explored these as part of Mdina day trip, found it very insightful for what we learned but was not as long as expected as through this in around 30 minutes. Was thinking we may have had a more interactive experience but not at all. It...More

Rather small, ghoulish wax-works style exhibition with sound effects. Really not worth the visit unless it is raining.

At a cost of just a few euros this is worth a visit. Lots of gory scenes of torture for those with a strong stomach!

A little macabre in parts but all in the spirit of historic experience. Interesting. Seeing the dungeons helped me understand the history of M'dina.

This was very reasonably priced. It was very interesting and I'm glad we did this. Absolutely worth a look.

This is not for those with a squeamish stomach. It is dark and gloomy and quite bloodthirsty in places but gets it's point over well.

The museum shows very interesting perspective on the cruelty of punishments of the past, it's very graphic but on the other hand, it's only a display, so nothing to fear! The museum is small, the ticket prices are low, totally recommended.

A no holds barred display of torture from the middle ages, quite gruesome but realistically put together and worth a visit to see how barbaric people were in the past

Thank Andrew B
