It barely cost anything so can't complain to much but it is just one room full of torture equipment its interesting to look at for 10-20 minutes but not a lot to it.

A small place compared to the big museums but the price is good value and it's an interesting place to go that won't take up much of your day. The guide is extremely knowledgeable about the darker side of history!

What a great find. Very small but lots to see and the guide was amazingly knowledgable . Very cheap and a good way to spend half an hour (Max) if it is cold and raining !!

I went in there alone since I had nothing planned for the next hour. It's very small and I think it's a must do with the guide (the owner). If you do this alone it will take you a minute of ten to see it...More

The museum is very small, only one room in the basement. We first asked if there was some kind of guiding, and were told they didn't have that today. We went downstairs, but then the woman who sold the tickets came and said she could...More

This place is right on the market square (29) close to the town hall tower. We were lucky to have a guided tour with just 5 of us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and there was so much stuff in a very small place....More

We went as a family of 5 - very cheap ticket cost but we paid extra for the guided tour. The museum itself is very small but contains a lot! There are no signs or explanations whatsoever so paying the small extra fee is definitely...More
