Came here unexpected, we were just wandering and stumbled upon it and had time to kill. We bought two tickets (which are overpriced) it was very dark inside, had a few ‘torture devices’ around, with labelling next to them, that’s about it really. You get...More

It's not actually a museum, but quite a small exhibit of a few objects and some images. The description of the torture machines are written in many languages but with embarrassing translations and plenty of typos. It is quite expensive and the ticket is not...More

What a fascinating museum, I really enjoyed seeing these old torture items and imagining what it must have been like. It was a cheap hour or so at only €7.50 too

I feel they use the word Museum quite loosely in this instance. You walk around a dimly lit building and spend all of your time reading. I became quite disinterested and a little tired after a while. Some of the torture devices are on display...More

Dont bother The only tortuous thing was realising you have paid €7 to go in. There are a few exhibits but not €7 worth.

I wouldn't call it a museum, its tiny and most of the items they have are replicas. But nontheless, I enjoyed the 30mins I spent inside.

This was a museum that my partner didn't much want to visit. It actually is quite grotesque in places when you see just how cruel people could be to their fellow humans. It's not a massive place but is on 2 levels in a dungeon...More

Wasn't the worst but definitely not the best but we knew what to expect when we visited. €7.50 entrance fee and killed 30 minutes for us.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yeah! It really is a place where they take your money and hardly give you anything in return!
