Mdina dungeon is easy to walk past being reached down some less obvious steps on the right just after entering Mdina through the main gate. It has little signage and a small ticket window part way down the steps. This might be the location of...More

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

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.
