Basically there is only two rooms and they are small at that and in view of the exhibits it would take you no longer then half an hour to view

I really enjoyed the museum. It is a small one, with only 28 pieces. Some explanations were repeted (we don't really learn more things this way). Didn't accepted my student card, they only accept partners universities (should mention this on the site).

The museum is kind of small, but there are still a lot of fascinating torturing devices exhibited there. You also get a tablet so you can “scan” the items for additional information and videos. And the scary music is just the cherry on the top...More
