Torture Museum, Prague

2.0
#41 of 150 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.

Yes, terrible. Yes, throwing the creeps. But this is history. And her words are not "outfit". So what you see in the Museum of torture should be taken as objective reality. Which, I believe, a thing of the past. The attentive examination of the exhibits of this museum allows you to make clear-creators of these unpleasant devices were perfectly informed about human anatomy and physiology. Each of the exhibits is designed to inflict pain, and not any immediate and "viscous, gradually increasing, abysmal. The Museum exhibits very realistic. And realism seen add 956429 engravings and paintings, depicting colourful purposeful infliction of physical torment to extract information, punishment or obtaining pathological meet. And "explanatory notes", including language native Aspen.
