This museum may be small, but its very interesting. The guide will answer your questions concerning the torture mechanism and tools, he also speaks English and is very helpful. He also provided some extra fun for us. The experience was worth it.

Located down a short corridor on the quieter side of the old town square is this quite small museum. It is a single room downstairs jam packed with implements including a rack, pommel horse, iron maiden and shame masks. There were items hanging from the...More

A small place compared to the big museums but the price is good value and it's an interesting place to go that won't take up much of your day. The guide is extremely knowledgeable about the darker side of history!
