  • Last weekend visited the torture museum. Walked through it in an hour, but it was well worth it. The sometimes lurid torture methods which were used in ancient times still pose chills.

  • You will find all sorts of torture devised by man to inflict terrible suffering to one's fellows. You will find every tool used by the Inquisition: a history lesson that we should never forget. Recommended

  • Quite a small museum, but a very interesting and gruesome way to fill an hour or so in Bruges.
  • This place is small but worth a look in. Wax works are used to demonstrated the horrid instruments of torture which are annotated by multi-lingual signs. Really interesting and leaves you thankful you don't live in 16th century Europe.
  • The staff was very nice and entertaining. The place was interesting, but a little more hands on activities could of kept us entertained more than just staring at medieval torture devices. A little bit overpriced, but that's what you get for a tourist attraction. I recommend going to at least one torture museum, but once you've seen one, you've seen them all.
  • An interesting museum, the guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Maybe not suitable for young children or the squeamish!
  • Very cool original idea, and not too big or expensive. You can take 15 mins or stretch it to a full hour.
