An interesting activity to do if you have some free time. I wouldn't say appropriate for children though! All self guided with a few different sections. Would take you max an hour. Can't confirm the price but from what I remember it was a great...More

Nice place to see some of the mideaval torture instruments and scare the kids a bit. Entry is 240 CZK for a family. Takes about 30 mins.

Visited the museum with my family, 4 of us, excluding the VERY RUDE cashier that made me pay again for my ticket that I bought in the wax museum. The museum is very interesting.
