I wouldn't call it a museum, its tiny and most of the items they have are replicas. But nontheless, I enjoyed the 30mins I spent inside.

Its not worth the money, there is only a few things to see which you can also see in the pictures anywhere. Save the money for something els.

This was a museum that my partner didn't much want to visit. It actually is quite grotesque in places when you see just how cruel people could be to their fellow humans. It's not a massive place but is on 2 levels in a dungeon...More

I have never seen less effort put into an exhibit. Dark, hot, small basement with narrow passage ways containing a hodgepodge of torture instruments accompanied by lacklustre poster explanations giving little information about when and where they were used.

There was basically no effort into this museum. There was just some old devices with cartoon pictures and vague descriptions on how they were used. There was no real display or explanation of anything.

Don’t bother, it was expensive for ten minutes of walking through. The lighting was dreadful, hard to read the information on the walls. It wasn’t worth the money for the 10 minutes.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yeah! It really is a place where they take your money and hardly give you anything in return!
