We probably should have skipped this. I knew we wouldn’t like it, it’s not a place you enjoy. People can be very cruel and that potential for cruelty is in your face at this museum. Beyond the obvious ‘yuk’ factor there are a few good...More

Lots of instruments. Makes you really think about how cruel we have been to our fellow men .. Zagreb is small and if you’re in the old city it’s worth going for a quick visit 3* because we expected a little more. Lights were really...More

The price might be a little steep considering the size and number of items in the museum. However, it was very informative and scary! With a nice touch added for the closed room (no spoilers so I'm not gonna elaborate). Not for the faint hearted.

The museum is not bad, but it's very small. Altogether, maybe around 50 exhibits in two and a half small rooms. Plenty of items are copies. It's a good thing that they give you a tablet on the entrance that serves as a guide. Sounds...More

This Museum was a real eye-opener and the cruelty of the people doing the torture is hard to comprehend. How anyone can be so cruel is beyond me. However it is worth a visit, you have to be prepared for what you see.

Quite an informative and thought provoking museum. You can't help but feel for the poor people in history who suffered these awlful punishments. You have an electronic tablet which you carry around providing you more details of each piece in your own language. It is...More
