Torture Museum, Prague

2.2
#37 of 143 in Museums in Prague
At Torture Museum, inspect instruments, such as the Iron Maiden, which those in power once used to get confessions and information from their enemies. The museum's collection features more than 60 medieval instruments. Look for the noisemaker's fife--a metal collar used to punish bad musicians--or iron masks in the shapes of monsters that were worn by women accused of witchcraft. The exhibit also includes a rack, an interrogation seat with spikes, a Spanish tickle, and many other gruesome and bizarre devices. This museum is not recommended for visitors with weak stomachs.

  • I have been to this place during a trip to Prague with my boyfriend, and we realized this museum strolling near the Charles Bridge. Admission costs about €6 per person and at the counter for tickets you will not find any discounts but a hungry person eating always ahahah the Museum is very interesting and offers the translation of tortures in a variety of languages including Italian. The visit lasts about one hour and is an hour well spent in my opinion.

  • If you want a break from the city and just look at objects this place is okay. An art museum would probably be more interesting and informative. The exhibitions here are a bit repetitive, and not represented in a very creative way.
  • Impolite guy at the reception. We just decided to run away from that place.
  • Torture Museum fairly well taken care of. The tortures are reproductions, but they are very well made and all related images and detailed description.

  • The theme of torture revealed? More or less. As it turned out, two similar Museum. At first I was not, that the old square, but this went. One of the most surprisingly, parties to this museum is that it prints and paintings depicting Medieval torture. They are sometimes much scarier training themselves guns spread through the halls on all three floors of the Museum. Note in passing that all these instruments-no more than a replica of the present long time, shells destroyed. But they do not cease to be repugnant. It seems that the enlightened Nations of Europe essentially were and still are monsters, and no great culture patina will not make them better inside. Proof-incessant wars that European countries fought among themselves for centuries. The present world is the result of destruction of passional gene pool. In endless wars of the most daring and desperate, strong and fierce Europeans died, leaving no offspring. Current freaks will only observe their own dekadansom.
