This is one man's eclectic collection of beautiful and ancient things, nicely displayed in a lovely old building. We had a lovely hour or so wandering around, and really enjoyed the delightful courtyard area with background baroque music and a lovely fountain. I usually hate...More

We expected this palazzo to be a hidden gem. Although very interesting in parts, a snapshot of one man's priveliged life in medieval Malta, the interior building is too small and so becomes quite cramped when there are several people all trying to view the...More

The owner of this house liked to collect all kinds of things from ancient pottery to muskets to silver platters, and each is displayed in a different room of a great old house.

Really nothing special and definitely no worth of 10euros. Very small museum. I would not reccomend it ...
