Large selection of silver on display, as well as a good coin collection covering the history of Malta. Upstairs a charming collection of paintings. Well worth a visit.

It is a must if you are in Mdina. Very reasonable and you can visit both the cathedral and museum for the same charge.

Entrance to both the Cathedral and Museum is a modest 5 euros. This ticket also includes the Palazzo de Piro just around the corner. It contains some nice wood carvings but I would give it a miss if you are in a hurry. You buy...More
