Eight euro per person which is too much for what you see here. Kind lady showing some rooms with enthusiasm. They say it is a 300 year old house. If it is the case then it was not cleaned for 300 years. Full of dust....More

We loved this private collection of artifacts from Gozo's past. There are 28 rooms filled with interesting items themed into every activity performed by former village folk in times gone, including baking, wine making, black-smithing, carpentry, weaving, cheese making, farming, worshipping, travelling, and much more....More

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. On the whole the island...More

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.
