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Based on historical documents and engravings, we have amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, re-creating the atmosphere that prevailed throughout most of the Middle Ages.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?

It was pretty cool but also a bit much for our taste. I definitely do NOT recommend getting the audio guide.

The staff was very helpful and the museum was very atmospheric. The displays were nice and my only complaint is that the explanations could be more thorough and specific, and maybe add historical evidence.
