  • After having seen many similar museums I'd say this one leaves a lot to be desired. There are lots of pics and some devices of the things used but it's all pretty bland.  more »
  • 8euro is a lot to pay for what it is. It's at the end of the walk if you start at the bus station and go round to the castle at the top then back down.  more »

  • Would love to have spent more time in here such was the huge amount of information and things on display. However I got here shortly after arriving in the town and about 45 minutes before the museum was due to close. A fascinating place for anyone with an interest in medieval Europe and the laws of that time. Some of it was a bit gruesome but other parts more light hearted and sure to bring a chuckle to even the most somber person. Would like to have a better look around next time.
  • Small museum where you can see a few historical torture tools with a short explanation of its uses. I don't recommend it to sensitive people as it is a bit impressive to see how much time and work it's been given to such evil tools. I didn't feel comfortable and ended up being on a hurry to leave. There are discounts for students and military staff.
