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

  • Volterra I was quite upset and this Museum, albeit for a fee and not cheap, adds a touch of interest in a city that should give and do much more. The Museum is well worth a visit.

  • Beautiful cloister, which is a collection of tools, weapons, devices of torture, capital punishment and public humiliation all accompanied by illustrations and commentary in various languages. Horrifying, but historical evidence dating from the middle ages to the industrial age, across Europe and demonstrate what the refined human ingenuity, has researched systems to inflict the most atrocious and cruel tortures. The cost 8 euros is excessive and is not included in Volterra Card. Open every day from 10 to 19 (Winter only Saturdays and Sundays) do not recommend for children.

  • 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.

  • Interesting Museum, I confirm the small size, but deserves much for explanations month available, affordable price.

  • 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
