  • It is definitely worth visiting. Prepare to read a lot of info (the amount of time you should spend there is between 1,5-2h) and see almost all torture instruments you ever heard about. The fact that they have wax figures makes the experience even more real and thought-provoking. I am also glad the ticket was only 7€ for students, which is very affordable.
  • This was a very unexpected visit. It was raining and we were looking for something to kill the time. We loved it. The many ways of torture, almost unbelievable. No shortage of ingenuity. Everything is well documented in three languages (English, French and Dutch).
