Worth a visit
Sep 2019
This was a surprising museum. Did not expect to discover so much. Scary history of torture and great museum pieces. Not for the faint hearted. Some articles I could not read as I felt unwell.

Stomach churning yet fascinating glimpse into cruelty, and the stuff of nightmares.
Aug 2019
We were appalled and gripped by the merciless Inquisition, and the various kinds of terrible ways of causing excruciating pain causing a slow death which you could inflict on your enemy. We also found it handy to come back, avert our gaze, and use the toilets a couple of times, which did not inflict any pain, thankfully, other than the mental scars of seeing some of the images here. This is not a place to linger.

Disturbing for the wrong reasons
Aug 2019 • Couples
We decided to give this place a go, expecting the instruments of torture to be set out and explained in a sensitive way for the instruments of horror they were. I also expected it to be adult only. Unfortunately although there were clear signs up explaining it is unsuitable for children, a LOT of parents had decided to ignore this and bring them in including tiny ones. Truly shocking. What parent would want their children to see this? I was also horrified that weirdos were wandering around taking photographs. So although the instruments depicting man's continued inhumanity to man were awful, the really shocking and disturbing thing was people's behaviour. Give it a miss.

A gruesome but interesting visit
Aug 2019
We went in on the off chance and were pleasantly surprised. The items were gruesome but well explained. It was reasonable at 4 euros. I would recommend this museum

Morbidly fascinating
May 2019 • Couples
A fascinating but pretty gruesome museum which takes you through different forms of torture and punishment over the years. The museum is small and set over 3 levels which take around 45 minutes to cover.

Spooky but not too much

This was really more of a tourist trap. They did have old torture devices on display but the cost was high for what you got.
