The museum was 160k each, about £5.30gdp. The museum was quite small, and I'm not sure it was worth the price. Despite taking time to read the plagues at each display ( all explation is in very small type in A4 frames in 5+ languages, so we found it difficult to read in the low lighting in the dungeon) we...

This was quite interesting but you had to read a lot to know what most of the artefacts were. Many of the photos and information on the walls was replicated and repeated. It wasn't always clear what the images and items were, they weren't all clearly labelled. Other than that it was a bit of fun and quite interesting. Doesn't... More

We popped in to kill some time before our flight home and all were seriously dissapointed. Promises of a torture museum was only a dark underground tunnel, where there wasn't any light to see any of the exhibits anyway. Save your money.

The ticket is 160 krona or 6 euro. But it's not worth going there. The description of torture equipments are not very clear and all that is already known from different films. I don't recommend.

We stopped into this museum to get out of the cold a while and were severely disappointed. It's very expensive to get into, and we were in and out within half an hour feeling ripped off. There are only 3 rooms or so, a bunch of fake looking torture devices, crappy mannequins and hard to read plaques with generic descriptions... More

Came across this museum while walking around Prague. It was a bit of a rainy day, so we decided to check it out. It was an interesting way to pass 1-2 hours indoors. It's a self-guided tour, you can go at your own pace. Walk about the several floors, equipped with all kinds of torture devices and read the information... More

You can see different tools of torture in dark basement. You can hear someone screaming there. Not really terrific nor interesting.

Cheap and takes an hour or 2. Very convenient and fun. There are stairs but I think they had an elevator for disabled visitors too, but you should double check this. It's horrible what they used to do to people, water boarding seems so vanilla in comparison. Well worth it if you have the time, we had teenagers with us... More

The most interesting place you look full of ancient torture methods. Instead of seeing real figures and illustrations where The most clearly visible. Worth a visit instead.

I would've felt a lot happier with this if I had paid a lot less. Although very interesting (if you read all of the badly translated posters) it is over very quickly.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
