Museum of Torture
The Museum of Torture offers an insight into its unique collection of various instruments of torture and execution that have been employed since the ancient times to the present day. The Museum vividly depicts the notion of violence throughout history, with over 70 full-scale instruments of torture, which chilled even the toughest of people to the bone. The visitors will be able to see, touch and try exhibits such as the guillotine, pendulum – a swinging blade that descends lower and lower with each sweep, rack, The Virgin of Nuremberg, as well as many other instruments that were used to humiliate, torture, injure or execute the victim. Inside the museum, the visitor is immersed in a cabinet of wonders – a semidarkness in which the exhibits are bathing in a discomforting sound environment.
