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

I am a pretty strong hearted person who loves crime/horror shows, however, this scared the jeebies out of me. Each weapon came with a sensor code thing that you scan with your ipad they lend you, giving detailed explanations on how and why it was...More

Me and my partner thoroughly enjoyed our visit here to this museum. Although there are only 3 rooms, the content is well distributed and displayed and the ambience really gives you a sense of horror and terror. Would recommend! My only gripe, is that my...More

I found this place very interesting (though my husband didn't) displays in graphic detail (maybe not for the young ones) the cruelty man has inflicted on fellow man over the centuries.

Whilst interesting and well put together, it’s rather small, doesn’t last very long and is missing a lot of items. You have a tablet guide to use which shows you a bit about each exhibit as you go around which is quite good but the...More

We probably should have skipped this. I knew we wouldn’t like it, it’s not a place you enjoy. People can be very cruel and that potential for cruelty is in your face at this museum. Beyond the obvious ‘yuk’ factor there are a few good...More

Lots of instruments. Makes you really think about how cruel we have been to our fellow men .. Zagreb is small and if you’re in the old city it’s worth going for a quick visit 3* because we expected a little more. Lights were really...More

The price might be a little steep considering the size and number of items in the museum. However, it was very informative and scary! With a nice touch added for the closed room (no spoilers so I'm not gonna elaborate). Not for the faint hearted.

The museum is not bad, but it's very small. Altogether, maybe around 50 exhibits in two and a half small rooms. Plenty of items are copies. It's a good thing that they give you a tablet on the entrance that serves as a guide. Sounds...More
