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).

My impression of a museum is that it is a collection of historical artefacts. This is indeed a collection of quite a wide variety of torture items but they are all replicas. The museum consists of 2 rooms and you are given a tablet which...More

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

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.
