Museum of Medieval Torture

13 Dec

I don’t know what I was thinking going here, I really don’t.  I mean, I can barely see the news or most new movies now without getting that panicky ill feeling in my gut and I just can’t watch.  Yet, there I stood.

I got to the other side and noticed the Medieval Torture Museum was right there.  I must have thought it would be cheesy, I actually was hoping for some really ridiculous dioramas that talked or something but it was ONLY instruments of torture with old illustrations of the devices in action.

It’s a pretty lousy museum for many reasons but for the price of 150 ck (around $7.75), you too can be truly horrified at how terrible human nature is.
