Full description
Dive into the fascinating and disturbing history and development of physical punishment from antiquity to early modern times at the Museum of Torture in Vienna. Explore the History of Torture exhibition, which is based upon well-documented historical methods of torture and whose original exhibits are extended through the incorporation of academic texts, as well as tapestries and illustrations.

As well as finding out more about the different practices of torture throughout history in the museum's permanent exhibits, discover a special exhibition on “Torture Today” by Amnesty International.

The museum's organisers are strongly opposed to torture. As such, the purpose of exhibiting the tools of torture, execution, and punishment is to act as a warning. In keeping with this purpose, the curators of this museum have endeavored to make the exhibition as educational as possible, as well as entertaining.
