  • The Museum of torture is relatively expensive for its size. This set aside point, we see wide variety of instrument, Chair, illustrations... What good image which was able to be done regarding torture, on: no disappointment to predict!

  • We did not expect this view neither was among our priorities but we got intrigued. The exhibition is small but well organized with some variety of pieces and testimonies that explains very well. Many raw details that well describe however objects and circumstances. Perhaps not the best of its kind (I have visited in the past similar exhibits much larger and structured), but definitely worth a visit. I agree that it's for adults.

  • You visit in an hour at most. Small and well maintained, many tools are out from teche (I assume you can touch), to be reviewed though the accompanying captions: not clear if they were condoning or denunciation of torture, some songs are definitely taken from books or treated (maybe even contemporaries exposed instruments) but none was indicated the source. Particular surprise: the choice to expose a chastity belt and to explain the true nature and why it was considered torture device. Not what you expect!
