  • Really good little museum, opens your eyes to what used to be the norm and makes you thankful for not living in those times! Very realistic models and torture devices. Definitely worth a visit when in...  more »

  • Great displays, lots of interesting information and the gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and hospitable. Entrance fee is also very reasonable. I'd definately go again!
  • Interesting place, very informative and well done. Gets a lot of information across without being boring and very interesting to see all the devices and history behind them. Worth a visit, but not suitable for children as some of the things are quite graphic in their descriptions and drawings (there are a few sexual torture devices halfway through)
  • Lots of torture devices to see and information/ history with each piece, for a decent price but in quite a small space. Had a really nice time, and the man at the desk was very kind and polite. It's not that big of a museum, but it's not expensive either - absolutely worth visiting
  • Very interesting. With the small entry fee. Not very large but they got a lot in there and it was very informative without going too far. Everything had 3 languages​
  • This is an interesting place to visit. It showcases torture and execution methods through the ages. The price isn't high, but the museum isn't large either. It doesn't offer as much information as one might like, and it has a very bad odour. At first I thought it was part of the experience, but later realised it was just sewage. Still, worth visiting.
