Humanity's vilest inventions

The Rack, Head crusher, Judas Cradle, Thumb Screws, and the Saw, these are only some of the vilest inventions ever devised by humankind. Thousands, if not millions of people were subjected to the cruellest punishments imaginable during the Middle Ages and beyond. The Torture Museum sheds light on that morbid past and is the perfect place to learn more about the history of the horrible instruments that were used as punishment, during interrogations and at executions.

The Torture Museum in Amsterdam is not for the faint of heart, though it is an educational attraction in the heart of Amsterdam. Over 40 different instruments and torture methods from different parts of Europe are on display here. The collection ranges from the more well-known devices like the guillotine and the garotte, to the obscure like the inquisition chair and the sling.

This gripping attraction will give you a vivid glimpse into a dark medieval past where gruesome torture techniques and public executions were commonplace occurrences. It is your choice whether to simply observe the torture instruments and imagine how they were used, or to read the provided description, which give a brief historical background on when each was used and where it originated from.

The descriptions are available in several different languages, including English, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and German. The collection features both original and reconstructed devices that became popular in the period between the early Middle Ages and the French Revolution.
