Small museum with an array of torture devices, but no discussion of where they were obtained, when they were used, why they were used, and when/why they stopped being used. Viewing all those instruments and learning what they do to the human body without a...More

I really enjoyed the museum. It is a small one, with only 28 pieces. Some explanations were repeted (we don't really learn more things this way). Didn't accepted my student card, they only accept partners universities (should mention this on the site).
