Very professional, very detailed and clear explanations and illustrations - but definitely for the people that are feeling too good with the beauty of the area and need to spoil their mood. For me first 5 minutes were enough.

I’m glad I wasn’t around hundreds of years ago, my big mouth would surely have seen me meet with a terrible fate. This place bears testimony to a dark period in humanity and features crude torture devices designed to inflict and prolong maximum suffering. Beyond...More

Very interesting - whilst the pictures are drawings, they are quite graphic & coupled up with the description of how the pain was inflicted it can be quite gory!! It was a very interesting couple of hours!! Worth a visit...

This is more of a torture museum in general rather than specifically about the inquisition. There are 3 levels of displays of the various implements used to torture people. All have a multi language description. As others have said, you wonder what makes humans be...More

This museum is not only related to "Inquisicion" period (even if it is the main contribution) because it offers a review of the torture methods in ancient and recent ages. A clear, well documented and fairly complete exhibition allows to see most of the torture...More

It has all the history and the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition. It is very informative about the religious fervour of the times. It may not be suitable for children under 12.

The name is misleading, the references to the inquisition are minimal. It should be named museum of torture or something similar.

The museum has lots of distributing artefacts, but we'd hoped for a bit more history around the inquisition. Pretty grim stuff! Glad of the Geneva convention.

Sorry to read that, because we went there into the historical center of Santillana del Mar and the Museum was open for public.
