#2 of 6 in Museums in Carcassonne
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • An employee who approached you on the street... No price listed... The surprise is my car... A prohibitive price for something that has nothing of a museum... No historical evidence... In short it's shameful to steal money from the tourists... When the Castle costs it almost nothing.

  • A true ' tourist trap '. Way too expensive, just something to see and barely genteel explanation. All signs are for example laminated paper, where text full of errors (even in French). The mannequins are poorly made and all seem the same. If two or three euros costs, you can still turn a blind eye to all this. But €9.5 is really overly expensive for what you get. Absolutely to Shun!

  • Interesting to see. So you have a picture of how it used to be. Relatively small but good and detailed.

Where to stay in Carcassonne

Although the picturesque La Cite is a tempting place to stay, consider the quieter and more affordable La Bastide Saint Louis down the hill. La Bastide provides easy access by foot to the walled La Cite for daily tours and peace and quiet after dark.
