Don’t venture here if your squeamish, a good display of torture methods, In English and well displayed. Some I was aware off but was amazed to see others. 5€ will take 20minutes to view

What a unique museum! Pretty cheap, and relatively small but packed full of information and real-life instruments used throughout history. Absolutely fascinating.

Small, but cheap and relatively interesting. Yeah they're not original pieces, but believers did this stuff to heretics and it's worthwhile understanding just how brutal and vindictive it all was. We spent about 45 minutes in there with the kids and came away with some...More
