Highlights
    What to Expect
    Visit: Torture Museum Oude Steen, Wollestraat 29, Bruges 8000 Belgium

    In the beautifully renovated – and probably oldest stone – building in Bruges, you can discover a remarkable and spine-chilling collection of instruments of torture and learn about the history of law, order and justice in the city. Guaranteed to make you reflect on the complex medieval relationship between good and evil, and how the justice of the day continuously balanced on the border between violence and righteousness.

    Providing you have a strong constitution, you will enjoy this museum. Misery,Agony, Pain and Suffering, and all contained within a few rooms of this impressive museum. Very informative and detailed information with each of the excellent exhibits. Well worth a visit.

    An informative, interesting, and horrific museum about the implements and devices humans have used to obtain 'justice'. Some of the information boards about the implements was either positioned in slightly shadowy parts of the museum, or in small font which made things tricky to

    This museum is both fascinating and hilarious. I loved the wax models demonstrating the darkly wonderful instruments of torture. We spent a couple of hours in there! I would have liked to be able to lock my travelling partner in the iron maiden at the end Hahaha. 10 out of 10.

    Dear Ellen, Thanks a lot for your interesting review and off course your visit to our museum. Soon we will have a new item, an ancient witch scale, dated 1638, Brugge. A unique instrument used to weigh women accused of being witches. Hope to see you soon again Kind regards Dirk

    Let me just say, just upon walking downstairs and seeing the first exhibit, Vlad, I felt depressed. As I continued my journey, it became more and more disturbing, goosebumps down my back, and not in the fun way. The museum is actually quite small, but I've never spent more

    Dear Iuvhwk, Thank you very much for the interest you showed in our museum . As you said it is made to think, to understand this very difficult pillar of all societies: justice! And justice for all they say, but as you could witness this was not always the case. Justice has always been using knives with sharp blades, and today...to week...let us think about it. Kind regards Dirk
