    What to Expect
    Visit: Torture Museum Oude Steen, Wollestraat 29, Bruges 8000 Belgium

    In the beautifully renovated – and probably oldest stone – building in Bruges, you can discover a remarkable and spine-chilling collection of instruments of torture and learn about the history of law, order and justice in the city. Guaranteed to make you reflect on the complex medieval relationship between good and evil, and how the justice of the day continuously balanced on the border between violence and righteousness.

    Great little museum, not for the fainthearted. Not sure if it was fun or not. My favourite was the drunkards barrel. If you want to know what it is, you'll need to visit. Well worth the entry fee.

    I’ve been to many similar establishments over the years, and although this is small in comparison, it certainly packs lots of interesting stuff in. I learnt facts I’d not heard of before, everything was explained in multiple languages on the displays. The guy on the...More
