  • Experience filled with chills, representations of the wax people are very realistic, very clear explanations. You'll shudder of horror!

  • Passing through Bruges, stop you in this museum worth a visit (attention, young children refrain). Ambience, light, precise and synthetic comments at each"torture"... We believe it. We tend to want more and extend the tour so we're caught in this atmosphere.. yet it also reminds us how the man "could" be cruel (without further comment). Count an hour for this visit and stop in front of each illustration. The rate is correct (€ 8/person with discounted student). Easy to find. A great moment of discovery. Congratulations.

  • Shocking how nasty humans can be to each other. Takes about 45 mins to walk round the small museum and read the information cards. Some exhibits are obviously quite gruesome. Very well done in the spa...  more »

  • Nice place despite subject matter. Fairly compact & in a basement, still there are lots of props and devices. Also very good and detailed information for each display.
  • 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)
  • 4 rooms museum. Interesting stuff. Entrance fee-Adults: 8 EUR
  • Easily spend an hour or so. Was offered a family ticket which saved us a few Euros too.
