I am not a tourist that gets bought into things and I know where I'm going, most of the time. After reading about the Torture Museum, I was super keen on getting in. After coming to this wax museum, which is also titled, "Torturre," I...More

We went here not really knowing what to expect and it was a huge waste of money. As I’m reading the reviews, I am noticing many people paid a cheaper price than we were charged and we were even charged the “discounted” museum rate. It...More

I went there, because of my friend’s kids who wanted to visit the museum. It has a series of historical scenes with vax-figures, but it seriously lacks the atmosphere and workmanship of the exhibits. It is not even close to the well-known wax museums we...More

The waxwork museum was fantastic. At €4 it isn't exactly pricey, and you get what you pay for, but that's the charm of it. Half of the museum is full of highly entertaining waxworks of historical figures (some more controversial than others...), and then, with...More

Surely the negative reviews don't have a sense of humour. This isn't Madame Tussauds, it's a hilarious collection of historical characters that doesn't make sense. I think I saw Garibaldi three times. Enjoy the sheer comedy of the place and you'll have a great half...More

A light take on a wax work museum. A few characters that I didn’t expect to see in there and also some scenes that were a bit of a surprise such as the one involving Abraham Lincoln.

From the opening Churchill waxwork which I would not have guessed without a sign it got better and better. The Lincoln waxwork with John Wilkes Booth is the funniest thing I've ever seen. Highly recommended.

An interesting half-hour diversion off the beaten track. Don’t make this a priority, but it’s entertaining nevertheless. I liked the 2 or 3 torture displays, and learned more about some of the instruments used for that. The displays are in Italian only, so you’ll need...More

I went there with my 13,5-year old daughter. She was drawn by the poster in the street inviting us to visit. When we arrived, I had some double thoughts about entering, the photos at the entry didn't convince me there is some quality there. But,...More
