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

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

50 zloty for 2 people for 60-90 minutes is a small price to pay for such in depth knowledge of Polish history, religion and torture. It’s a small museum but has a lot in it. The owner who guided us tells a lot of funny...More

We were very disappointed. The owner didn't answer any of our questions. He just talked about World War I and II and how he hates black people and Arabs (!). The exhibition is only one room, no information added. I don't recommend that place.

The price is not high and the place is worth a visit. But I think it would be weird to have a guided tour for only one person so I suggest you go there with a small group of 3-6 people. A bigger group probably...More

Great little museum, ran and owned by a passionate gentleman, who has put a great deal of time into designing and transforming the place into his museum of torture. He is very knowledgeable about every piece in the museum, and if you're interested in history...More

Only go if you're up for a laugh, the guy that offers you his personal guided tour is worth the extra 30 Zlotys. If you don't choose the tour you'll probably be in and out in 5 minutes and it'll feel like a huge waste...More

I'd recall it opened about 10am, but I'm not sure. I visited Executioner Museum around 12 o'clock on Friday!
