Online and on the ticket the price was €5.00 and when we got to the entrance the price was €7.50. They don't accept credit card but cash only, which was a little bit annoying. The inside was small but interesting. If you are planning to...More

€7.50 entrance fee, lots of equipment to look at and read up on but many I had already seen/heard about before coming here so nothing to wow/shock you. Passes half hour if you can be bothered to read ALL the signs. We visited on a...More

If you're a history buff and interested in this sort of subject or other macabre things, this "museum" will not teach you anything you didn't already know. I have been to other similar so-called museums in Europe and this one is okay. If you've never...More

Slightly overpriced at €7.50 for what you get, nevertheless it's an interesting museum if you're lighthearted enough to recognise that you're not going to get the same level of quality as the bigger museums. Had fun here and it was a good way to spend...More

An overview of medieval torture methods. This makes it painfully clear that the separation of church and state is extremely important.

Very poor attraction, and I use that term loosely, and not even worth the 5€ each we paid. A few display pieces and a lot of lit wall signs which tell you about torture devices. The signs were held together with black masking tape and...More

Really disappointing. No interactivity or atmosphere. No real set up as to what to expect i.e. a booklet. Too much reading as you look at the exhibits, many of which are hard to make out and no audio tour offered. Very dark lighting and I...More

Very unhelpful. Wouldn't let us in with the pram, no effort made to help facilitate us even though we said we would dismantle the pram. Didn't bother to argue, why would I go in when I'm so unwelcome??

Don't bother, in terms of attractions it lacks any effort, wish I'd read the reviews before we went. Never mind, still lots of amazing places to go 👍

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yeah! It really is a place where they take your money and hardly give you anything in return!
