  • It was a desire for my son know that torture inflicted in the last centuries, then the torture Museum of volterra is the fairer place x to understand a piece of our history, even if ugly Museum did very well with a lot of explanation and pictures of every machine that in the past used x inflict pain, definitely not suitable for people too sensitive in fact, my wife was out, definitely not all children are brought x this kind of experience, but if one if he feels it is right to let him know what mean things can arrive the human being

  • Very interesting and instructive, well explained ... a little high price of admission, considering the size of the Museum.

  • Private exhibition held with the instruments of torture and capital punishment, collected throughout Europe, used from the middle ages to the industrial age. All accompanied by illustrations and captions in different languages. There is also a possibility, although we didn't used to get an app for an audio guide. The path doesn't last very long. Us, reading and observing everything calmly, there we put more than 30 minutes. The note, in my opinion, is a bit overblown but it is really interesting. Ticket €8 ticket €6

  • Part of multiple torture museums around Tuscany, nice place to see. Detailed descriptions
  • Interesting look into the cruelty that men used on other men. Numerous forms of torture devices are represented. There are several museums throughout Italy.
  • Great tour. Highly recommended for those who loved the Medieval atmosphere of Volterra's market and parade.
  • Most broad torture museum i have visited. Good location and clear text infos.
  • The museum has a noble goal to fight against torture and gain awareness to many tortures that are still used nowadays in different countries.
