Cost €5 each to see what is essentially a very poorly maintained display of old machinery and a few artefacts. Could not in all honesty recommend a visit here. Very disappointing and unimpressive

It is a private-owned museum hosted in an 18th-century village house. Historic objects associated with Gozo’s traditional trades, crafts and pass times are what are exhibited out here and it reminded me of similar I see in villages in Cyprus.

The ideal place where history, culture and tradition meet and one can experience ancestors' work at first hand. The museum is situated exactly in a lovely quiet square of Gharb, Gozo.

In need of a tidy up but a lovely museum for those who are interested in the islands history. Lots to see for the money, however opening times are loose. Worth a look if you are staying in Gharb!
