  • The woman has the reception was very friendly and we explained the operation of the Museum and in an impeccable french! You have the opportunity to stroll through the 8 rooms has your leisure reading the explanations or by downloading the application planned for the Museum. I found this visit very interesting yet disturbing insofar as we can really imagine what we could live people. The fact to have put this Museum in a former prison still more reinforces the impression of oppression. I recommend it if you want to get off the beaten track.

  • Found it on TripAdvisor, we entered and sensitive souls refrain. See and understand what could be done in the past (see until very recently for some) is really disturbing. But interesting. Especially when we know that the Museum is inside a former prison.

  • €10 entrance, for what it offers, it seems excessive to me. More expensive than many museums (other subjects, I mean), I think that you can devote time to other more interesting visits. Yes, it tells you methods of torture of other times, you realize of evil that can become human, but... it is. I do not understand how in several Tuscan cities have similar museums.

  • An amazing display of medieval methods of social control and the hostess is very knowledgable and I thought her choice of music very interesting, at one point the soundtrack from the movie The Mission by Ennio Morricone was playing, quite a contrast to the cruel torture devices on display. Well I guess a rose grows from blood
  • A really interesting place to visit! It's quite and creepy and full of gruesome instruments but this just adds to the overall experience
  • Very interesting although not exactly a pleasant experience.
  • A little short, but interesting. Their audio guide app was buggy and slow.
  • We were just passing by and came across this torture museum but it's awesome experience!
