  • Admission charge is 7,50 EUR and it is more like a 30 minute tour through Middle Ages. Every exposition has it's own explanation in different languages and that's quite informative. For a short trip.....  more »
  • This museum was well priced and very interesting. The information was very clear and easy to read. They only accept cash which was a little inconvenient but if you know it going there it's fine.  more »

  • Entry is relatively cheap, me and my buddy enjoyed our time going through this museum. It took us about 30 minutes and we enjoyed reading all the information panels and examining the different objects for torture. It's not the most amazing or strangest museum I have ever been to but this place doesn't claim to be either. It is a great little museum that we discovered while exploring Amsterdam.
  • Interesting and creepy place. Not busy at all which allowed us to look at mankinds worst side of creativity without feeling rushed at each piece. Would recommend if you're in the area.
