About
The "Medieval Torture Collection" reminds us just how much suffering humanity can inflict in the name of cause and justice when the right tools are placed in the hands of fanatics, madmen and tyrants. The exhibit fills more than 4000 sq. ft. Spend...more

This is probably one of the most frightening places I’ve ever visited (but, in a good way!). I read that the creators had the intent to evoke emotion when designing this museum. They did a great job with that! The displays were gruesome. The mood...More

This place was interesting! Felt a few dollars overpriced but I’m generally satisfied. I wonder if purchasing the audio tour would have filled in some of the gaps.

Very informative and graphic, but I believe this is a part of history that is very important to know about and ponder. This place is not for the faint of heart, and for the love of all that is good...DO NOT BRING YOUR KIDS HERE....More

What a unique experience! I was there with both of my teenage boys. They found it eerie, gross and enthralling. 😂

Overall, a very unique museum that really gets you thinking. It's pretty large spanning several areas. It was a bit dark but I guess that's to be expected in the Dark Ages! I do wish there were more items that were animated in some way...More

This is a tourist trap luring those into torture. It has a free gift shop and a shake down museum with no real artifacts. If you’re into torture this and a doctors office is for youMore

Hello, I am not sure what a "shake down " museum is, but we do have some authentic pieces in the museum, although most are replicas. We are quite different than anything else in St. Augustine and have never been called a "tourist trap" before....More

I will have to say, the torture museum itself is super creepy and very grotesque. Really cool place. The low rating is for two reasons 1) 80% of the museum is reproduction displays. Kinda takes the setting out of the place when you realize most...More

This place was simply the best torture museum I’ve ever seen. The staff was great and the exhibits blew me away.

The exhibits were interesting but a little on the gruesome corny side. A lot of things seemed to be repetitive. Not a must see.
