I'm not sure what I was expecting from this museum but I was disappointed. It was probably my misunderstanding of what it was about, rather than anything wrong with the museum itself, but I left rather quickly. The garden courtyard was nice to sit outside in though for a bit under the trees.More
I had no idea that there was Roman Inquisition. So I came away learning something which I always find pleasing when I visit places like this. Would recommend this to people who are interested in the history of Malta. Take lots of water as it is sweltering inside. I have serious back problems so entering the cells was an act on its own but did not distract my view of the Palace. All exhibits are explained in Maltese and English. There were no translating gizmos to carry around with you.More
I found this arguably the most interesting museums on the island and I am glad I visited this place. Interesting place for people who enjoy history. It is part of the joint ticket if you take that out.More
There’s a rather bleak feeling to this museum, in keeping with the work it housed. However, the explanations are good and I gained some understanding of the Roman Inquisition as a kind of mind-policing which aimed to maintain the purity of Roman Catholic doctrines. The tribunal, torture chamber and prisoners’ cells were perhaps the more chilling for their nods to civilisation. Lots of models (model-making seems to be highly skilled in Malta) and religious art works , and some interesting domestic equipment in the kitchens.More
The large palace on three floors is well signed in English and Maltese to explain the Inquisition on Malta plus exhibits of Maltese life. It is interesting especially for adults with an interest in history. More
