“Not worth your time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Of course you would expect Vlad Tepes' birthplace to have a nice macabre torture museum, but it doesn't. The size of a walkin closet with a few items, many of them not even old. Perhaps that's why Vlad never developed anything beyond the sharp stick. Skip it and spend more time in the clock tower.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is only 4 Lei (about $1.30 US) but it is in a small room with a rack and hang mans pole and noose.. There are explanations of torture methods and pictures, but don't waste your time if you have to stand in line. I've been to some amazing ones in Italy.

“A Walkthrough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you have the time, it's worth a walk through, otherwise it's not a must see. There isn't a lot to view so it's not something to plan your day around.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I love torture museums, and this one is just a room with a few things hung on the walls. Not worth doing, as it's just so tiny.
