Torture Museum

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Torture Museum exhibits the instruments used in the practice of torture and provides histories of their origins and uses in human society. The museum has over 100 torture devices in five rooms accompanied by a vast collection of photos, drawings, wax figures, and torture tools. Although the grim atmosphere of the museum may have a slight impact on its visitors, it effectively chronicles the history of human cruelty dating all the way back to the middle of the 17th century.
