Splendid building and setting. Old school ecclesiastical focussed exhibits. Dramatic religious bling. Albrecht Durer exhibition worth a look. Good value at 5euro including the cathedral.

The Mdina Cathedral is a true gem. The Museum is also unique in that it contains many unique artefacts reflecting Malta's culture and history. Thank you for your positive comments.
