Use your time to see places & things of interest in Amesterdam; this is not one of those places. It is poorly done & is in need of attention. Most of the exhibits are nothing more than printed materials posted on the wall. At best they are difficult to read due to the poor lighting. If it was free, it might be worth 10 to 15 minutes but at 15 Euros, walk on by...

It really pains me to write this poor review. I visited this attraction 10 years ago with my brother and had a great time. I brought my wife her today and was extremely disappointed. The attraction has gone to hell. It took us all of 15 mins to complete the boring tour which costed us 15 euros. Save your time/money and visit another attraction instead.

It was interesting but weird. There were a lot of torture instruments and pictures explaining the kinds of torture that went on in medieval times which was good. However the building is so small we could not move people were behind us constantly so you felt rushed through the whole thing and could hardly take photos and it seemed to be over within 5 minutes! But then again, What do you expect for 7 Euros each?
No disabled access BTW

Not really a museum just rooms with lots of props, it contains information on all torture devices and contraptions and you'll find yourself saying ouch more than once. It's an alright place and I wouldn't go as far as to be negative because we had a few laughs in there all the same. It's not that expensive and worth going if you want to do something in the evening time when all the other museums are closed.

If you ever want to expericance some 5-6 minuites of tourism in Amsterdam this is the place to go... It's starts off with a robbery by the in house ticket collector you then proceed to experiance a whirlwind tour of what can only be described as on a level of fun similar to having constipation... Do not visit this museum unless you want experiance the mind numbing exhibits and have the overwhelming urge to knaw off your own leg.
