  • In a beautiful setting, with numerous instruments of torture (whose original 35%, according to the staff) clearly described, this museum does understand where can get the wickedness of mankind. Among other things some of these tools are still used in some parts of the world. Maybe the ticket is a bit pricey (8 euros) but it is a sobering experience on many negativity of men.

  • The exhibition of torture instruments is complete with pictures and captions that allow visitors to imagine gruesome scenes of torture. Maybe it's a little pricey entrance fee

  • Watching but especially read captions associated with each instrument moved me with her mind at that time. Really interesting.

  • Interesting museum, very gruesome. All exhibits are described in Italian and English
  • The Museum is not huge but well worth a visit if you are near the Centre of Volterra. The objects on display are not plentiful but the written explanations are quite detailed and in multiple languages. For visiting serves an hour or so and admission is 8 euros. Dogs can get in.

  • Small but nice hotel, a bit expensive the ticket. Things on display seem to reproductions, however good workmanship. (I found the same Museum in San Gimignano). Accurate descriptions of the tools and methods of torture.

  • A small museum in the heart of Volterra, but very rich in original instruments of torture, accompanied by exhaustive tabs that explain operation, motivations of use and consequences. Even the atmosphere created inside the Museum is suitable to the theme exposed. I highly recommend a visit to anyone who tour to Volterra
