This Museum was a real eye-opener and the cruelty of the people doing the torture is hard to comprehend. How anyone can be so cruel is beyond me. However it is worth a visit, you have to be prepared for what you see.

Interesting displays and liked the tablet you got to take around, that explained everything . It was quite a small museum and not well lit. It takes maybe an hour to get around, but worth a visit

Another must see in Zagreb. It has a lot of devices used to torture humans in the past, even the impaling stick mostly used by Vlad the Impaler. You get audio and written guide in many languages, so go visit it!
