“Not bad, three floors of exhibitions”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I went to three museums in Prague and this was the best. It may not be a great museum but it blows away the alchemist and ghost museums!

Interesting history and a wide range of items I had never learned about in history classes. It's worth a visit

“Pretty dark, but that's the point!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I stumbled across this while I was looking for the Charles bridge. Very interesting yet very dark and sickening. I thought it was worth the price of admission.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I visited here on the way back to my hostel after visiting the sex machine museum.
There are many interesting and bizarre exhibits, with an amazing amount showing similarities to those found in the sex machine museum. It offeres a great insight into the horrid practices of all european powers in the past, and is well worth a visit.

“No big deal at all”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Some objects used to torture people in the past (no information if they are original or not), a few dummies representing people being tortured and some draws in the walls with more of the same. That's it.

“Creepy but good wealth of knowledge in the museum”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I went on my own and got really scared. I missed reading some of the displays because I was trying to catch up with the couple that was ahead of me. The place is sort of dark with disturbing screams and groans played for effect. I paid 150 czk or 6 euros. If you have time, go see it as it is very interesting and disturbing to see what the olden day people used to use to torture people. The whole museum could probably be done in 30 mins.
