  • A must-see in Cordoba for those who are interested in the inquisition and want to be scared with the instruments of torture used in the middle ages. The set design is quite simple, but the 'tools' impress often and explanations are clear in several language including the french.

  • There has been much heard in school or even through television programs at the time of the Inquisition in Europe and of the terrible atrocities but if you enter this gallery that earlier view of harmless armor then you will truly and sadly account of aberrant atrocities he is capable of mankind. I thought that Nazism or some dictatorships of the last century, as well as cannibalism of some primitive tribes were kinda the excesses of the human soul, but when you see those torture machines think again about everything and you will wonder, but a civilization, the European one and a religion Christianity, as they can generate such an incredible and inconceivable abomination? This is the reason to visit this gallery and see how our daily lives walk on a razor blade, it seems everything away, absurd, distant, but this gallery advises us that everything is actually much closer and this is worth going to, to meditate on our words, our judgments; Yes, because it is Europe and the Christian religion that pitting the people with falsehoods and propaganda has designed and built those cars, I don't know-who came from where?

  • This museum I quite liked because it has a lot of apparatus and well-preserved medieval torture instruments and with their respective information plates of it called and used. The entrance fee is €3 and without flash photos can be done.

  • A fun museum! Not really about the inquisition though. This museum is more of a gallery of antique torture devices. There really isn't that much information about the inquisition. Having said this, we still really enjoyed it and it is cheap! (3 euro on 9 June 2016). Well worth a visit when it is so hot outside!
  • Great fun and if you like that sort of thing it's pretty gory too
  • I walked into the ticket area before I realized this wasn't so much about the Inquisition as it was about the instruments people in power used to do the most awful things to helpless people. I don't have the stomach for that. I left without going inside.
  • Not much to see, relies on titillation rather than historical scholarship. O.K. if you've got a child with a morbid fascination with torture, give it a miss otherwise.
  • Very interesting. Some of the instruments of torture that are replicas. There are posters that explain each instrument in several languages. You explained very well how each instrument was used. Not recommended for sensitive people...
