Description

from Medieval Torture Museum
The emotions inspired by the “Medieval Torture Collection” will transport you back in time hundreds of years to some of the most miserable moments in human history.

Our exhibit is a unique presentation that combines academic research with the contradictive, emotionally repulsive draw of a time in history when torture and torment were commonplace.

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.

Based on historical documents and engravings, we have amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, re-creating the atmosphere that prevailed throughout most of the Middle Ages. For several years, a team of scientists, historians, decorators, and sculptors have worked on creating a unique collection consisting of several hundred pieces filling more than 4000 sq. ft.

Spend an hour here and you will better know the nature of fear.

Are you brave enough?

Neat idea. I have been to this same type of museum in Germany and it is MUCH better. This over priced and the displays are poor quality. That is all.

Honestly I wasn’t too impressed. I really didn’t expect much out of it and that’s what I got. You have basically one floor of items to look at and it took us about 20 minutes. Every torture device or tool comes with and explanation of when and where it originated but it didn’t tell you how it was used. Some of the pieces you can figure it out by looking but some you could not. I got the feeling that if I’d paid extra to get the audio tour, it would’ve told me how some of the pieces worked. I also found it to be a little too dark in some of the rooms. I realized the owners are trying to create a specific atmosphere but in some of the corners it’s so dark it’s hard to read the descriptions. Also some of the rooms are not very large and you can only fit one couple in there without being right on top of each other. Not too great but not too bad. I probably wouldn’t recommend this place to any of my friends. For my wife and I, it was about $29.
