  • Unique.. a beautiful evocation of objects and torture techniques. You can find all the explanations that are specific to each object. Recommended.

  • My fiance and I were in San Marino to ponte della befana and got us Intrigued this Museum (I had never visited one devoted to this topic). Spread over two floors, is not huge, but enough to get a pretty good idea about how cruel the human soul. Instructive, well explained (each instrument has a detailed description in several languages), pushes the reflection.

  • Museum with a lot of atmosphere. The museum itself is not very big but the beauty lies in how it is structured. It contains several instruments of torture and finally as well an old "cell" and detailed descriptions for each tool. If you are curious I highly recommend it! Very interesting.
