“Be careful which one you go to!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Some of the pics on here and the wax models are not at the museum by the Charles Bridge. I dont know where it is!!! Searched all over the internet and found nothing to say where it is! The one by the Charles Bridge is OK. A fair few torture devices but its not very gorey or scary. Just devices in a room with a bit of info on it. We went on a really sunny day to escape the heat and it was good for an hour or so.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

I saw a brochure on this place, and thought it would be interesting. It definitely was. There were some sickos alive back then!
Great way to learn how to dislocate and crush joints, torture and maim another human being before chopping off their head.
Not sure if it's somewhere you want to take your kids. There is audio of people screaming from the torture playing in the background.
Great way to use up 45 spare minutes if you've finished the other attractions that you want to do for the day.

“Ouch !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Wasn't sure quite what to expect here however I was pleasantly surprised - if a trip around a museum of torture instruments could be classed as pleasant....
There were some pretty sick minds in Medieval times and here you can see the implements to prove it.
Look out for the Saw, particularly cringe worthy !!!
It's pretty cheap to get in and takes probably an hour to get round - depending on how ghoulish you are - so if you're nearby give it a go.

“Only If You Are In The Area..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

To be honest, it wasn’t what I expected. The building smelled like armpits, and was dirty. Although some of the exhibits were interesting, I wouldn’t recommend it unless you have time to kill and happen to be in the area.
