This museum gives you a good idea as to what daily life was like on Gozo in years gone by.. it is on various floors of the old house so there is quite a lot of walking up and down stairs. Definitely worth a visit.

One of the few remaining buildings within the Citadel. Worth a visit though it'll only take a while if you get lost in the maze of rooms!

Dealing with different aspects of Gozoan life over the last few hundred years, it is interesting place to wander around if your legs are good - you are up and down a lot of uneven stairs.

This museum gives you a very good sense of what life was like within the Citadel walls. Well curated and easy to understand what life was like for those who lived there. The cross over of uses where the restaurant of today shares it cooking...More
