Based on historical documents and engravings, this unique museum of historic torture devices has amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, re-creating the atmosphere that prevailed throughout most of the Middle Ages. The museum occupies over 4,000 square feet of historically accurate exhibits, life-like reenactments, and displays of more than 100 unique implements and devices - offering a chilling look into the darkest parts of human history.
