This is a small museum, which uses lighting and sound effects to create the haunting atmosphere. The sound of the typewriter and the screams of the interrogation in the Gestapo Officers office, lives with you. The small displays, all with English options are very interesting,...More

The museum is quite small and there are only relatively few exhibits, but it's still a must see. Tricky to spot as it's not covered with a great big sign, look out for the pull-up advert and go through the door to enter. Very inexpensive...More

Certainly left my group of friends quiet. It was very interesting to learn about the history of the torture of the prisoners that took place in the depths of this HQ. It is atrocious. However, I feel if part of the reason you visit here...More
