  • It is small but very complete, they are 5 rooms with a variety of instruments and gadgets that make it the twisted thing may be the man. The explanations are clear and short, with enough information to leave no doubts. I would recommend that if you are with children, these will not alone through the rooms because they can not understand what they see or they can frighten. If accompanied by an adult can make the visit more interesting but always doing the reflection of the evil that is to be intolerant. Very advisable, large and small, but it is better learn not to repeat those forms of abuse the neighbor again.

  • Visit the Palacio de Mineria we even saw the little Museum of torture that mainly exposes European torture tools ranging from the 14th to the 19th century. Only one grisly curiosity. Entrance costs MXN 40 and is open every day from 10 to 18.

  • You may not use cameras, truth the Museum has lots of good information so if you really want to learn you have to go with time, I do not recommend it if it is your first time in CDMX for the same reason, is very close to the historic centre. If you expect to see some of the instruments of torture, it is the right place. What I liked most was that they explain that the purpose of the Museum, which is the awareness on the issue of torture and all its negative aspects.

  • Very nice museum and theme. Well worth the entrance fee. But they do not allow photography; probably because they don't want people posing with, and potentially damaging, the exhibits. Exhibit descriptions are translated to English.
  • Short and very interesting, great instalations and there is a chairs with TV if you are tired You can't take pictures
  • Instruments of Torture. Well signed, also in English. Not sure how many items are really reproductions tho.
  • Interesting museum, although somewhat small.
