Horrible torture machines and devices. If you go ... prepare to see things that will stay in your mind forever. Shocking things that people have done and continue to do to one another. Very upsetting and I consider myself a tough guy....

Not your usual happy vacation adventure but you will see what people have been capable of in the name of their beliefs. Not to over sell the visit but it has impacted our lives.

Small but interesting, amazing what we as humans can do to each other. Interesting to note some of these torture techniques and worse are still being practiced today

Came here while visiting this lovely old town, and it was a real eye opener. It is a very interesting and educational place, would recommend visiting, but may need a drink after to take your mind off some of the horrors.

Interesting, but shocking how humans can treat each other. If you're in town, worth an hour of your time.

If your into horror and gory movies like me. You'll love this tiny museum. It doesn't have a lot of stuff. But still very interesting. Definitely recommend going.
