Mdina Cathedral Museum

The architectural crown of Mdina, the Cathedral Museum was originally a seminary and today serves as a significant religious museum.

A small chapel exhibiting church vestments is situated on the second floor. It also boasts an impressive cross-section of sacred art, famous paintings, a coin collection, Roman antiquities and original documents from the time of the Inquisition. The museum also contains a particularly rich collection of music manuscripts and there is a superb collection of woodcuts by Albrecht Duhrer.
