Emotions.
Emotions are a genuine time machine. The emotions inspired by the "Medieval Torture Collection" will transport you back in time hundreds of years to some of the most miserable moments in human history.

Our exhibit is a unique presentation that combines academic research with the contradictive, emotionally repulsive draw of time in history when torture and torment were commonplace.

The collection targets our most primal emotional response - fear. The film industry spends millions of dollars on horror films, tapping into that most basic response and our desire to know it more intimately, without actually having to be afraid.

The "Medieval Torture Collection" reminds us just how much suffering humanity can inflict in the name of cause and justice when the right tools are placed in the hands of fanatics, madmen and tyrants.

Based on historical documents and engravings, we have amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, re-creating the atmosphere that prevailed throughout most of the Middle Ages. For several years, a team of scientists, historians, decorators and sculptors have worked on creating a unique, holistic concept consisting of several hundred pieces; exhibits united in individually-themed scenes. To enhance the effect, ambient sound and human mannequins are used, made with the utmost realism, making them hard to distinguish from real people.

The ticket price includes a detailed audio listen guide to which the Visitor discovers interesting details of medieval torture methods and devices. As well as a Ghost hunting experience which involves searching for ghosts via a mobile application directly in the exhibition hall during the tour.

The exhibit fills more than 4000 sq. ft. Spend an hour here and you will better know the nature of fear.
Are you brave enough?
