(1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Learn how our predecessors got "confessions" out of religious prisoners at Le Musee de la Torture de Carcassone. This small museum is dedicated to the inhumane torture devices and methods used during the Holy Inquisition. The instruments on display forced unfortunate captives to convert or die. It's a good stop for people interested in religious history, forensics, or the chronology of man's inhumanity to man.

  • The visit happens in 2 time on 2 locations spaced 200-300 meters: a House then the museum itself. The House Party is hopelessly uninteresting: not news, not a text, not an explanation: the scam. Then 300 meters further, what I would call the museum itself: a lot of texts, poorly maintained, aging: only interest of the info on the Cathars. In summary for nearly 10 euros per person, without any reduction, it's too expensive.

  • the first part is useless, the stagings are of rather mediocre quality... the Museum part is more interesting but I think for children is not possible... some instruments are shocking. as regards the price is really too expensive for what it is! then I well understand the need to pay the charges but €9.5 is a bit excessive for what is
