  • 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

  • Interesting museum, very gruesome. All exhibits are described in Italian and English
  • Small museum, one of the many torture in these towns in Tuscany. Full admission price of 8 euros. An hour and visit everything. Improved some lights in certain corners of the Museum, you will find it hard to read the descriptions of the exhibits.

  • Very interesting, clear explanations and right setting. Small, but well laid out. Entrance 8 euros a bit overpriced.
