  • This is probably the gold standard of museums dedicated to torture, with pretty much every atrocity committed by humans on display, and most of them are original. They do address the fact that some of these are actually fantasy, or at least the product of imagination. The main drawback of that it doesn't delve deeply into context of why the torture happened, especially with the Inquisition, but it does give a good idea of how the devices worked. One thing though, this isn't a museum for kids, unless you want a lot of questions, and possibly significant nightmares.
  • Unique. It was worthwhile stumbling upon it during a walk if Centro Histórico México City. If you planned on going it may be a little underwhelming, could have been more interactive. The price is fantastic compared to U.S. pop-ups. It was interesting viewing and learning about the history of each piece.
