After having to endure the rude lady at the ticket counter, we entered into 2 small dark rooms filled with replicas of instruments of torture. Hard to fathom the types of people who came up with these barbaric ways of inflicting pain. Though small, it...More

A room full of orifice obsessed implements of torture is something that has to be seen to be believed. Five stars from me.

Basically there is only two rooms and they are small at that and in view of the exhibits it would take you no longer then half an hour to view

I really enjoyed the museum. It is a small one, with only 28 pieces. Some explanations were repeted (we don't really learn more things this way). Didn't accepted my student card, they only accept partners universities (should mention this on the site).

The museum is kind of small, but there are still a lot of fascinating torturing devices exhibited there. You also get a tablet so you can “scan” the items for additional information and videos. And the scary music is just the cherry on the top...More

I was there yesterday with my family, and we were disappointed. There wasn't that much to look at and it was over in 10 minutes.

We visited here with our young kids despite knowing it probably wasn't the best of ideas. Unfortunately the museum was on the small side compared to others we have visited in other places in Europe, but it was well done. As others have mentioned, you...More
