Medieval Torture Museum

The ''Medieval Torture Collection'' reminds us just how much suffering humanity can inflict in the name of cause and justice when the right tools are placed in the hands of fanatics, madmen and tyrant

The emotions inspired by the ''Medieval Torture Collection'' will transport you back in time hundreds of years to some of the most miserable moments in human history. Our exhibit is a unique presentation that combines academic research with the contradictive emotionally repulsive draw of a time in history when torture and torment were commonplace. Based on historical documents and engravings, we have amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, re-creating the atmosphere that prevailed throughout most of the Middle Ages. For several years, a team of scientists, historians, decorators and sculptors have worked on creating a unique collection consisting of several hundred pieces filling more than 6,000-square feet. We are the first exclusive Medieval Torture Museum in the USA, over 6,000 SQ FT. Interactive, ''hands-on'' displays, fully immersive, an emotional experience with unique photo opportunities. We are showing the dark side of history. The tour is self guided so that you may enjoy it at your own pace. The customized Audioguide introduces the collection and characters, and the Ghost Hunting Experience will let you capture restless spirits. Spend an hour here and you will better know the nature of fear. Are you brave enough?
