  • A museum where the instruments speak for themselves. A unique exhibition for its interpretation and with strong impact on visitors. An exhibition in which the horror aroused in viewers to the vision of the tools allows us to make them our allies in the fight against torture. An exhibition that wants to be a strong witness and that does not remain confined in the history but that becomes very timely. An exhibition that lays bare the worst side of human nature: every man is hiding and it never appears a potential perpetrator. A view presented with great rigor and fairness, help to foment a conscience and to respect the opinion and I believe now, primordial base of democratic systems of modern times.

  • A nice Museum of torture with many tools: guillotine, chastity belts with nails, Chair, etc the visit lasts an hour or so but the sore point from my perspective is paying for 2 adults and 2 children (children up to 10 years because) 28 euro ...

  • First time I enter a Museum of torture and the exit I was taking a pretty angst reading and seeing all that man was able to think and invent. There are no words. Admission fee for 8 euros per person. Museum well maintained with lots of equipment where it explains what was and how they were used.

  • 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
