Medieval Crime And Justice Museum - Review

This one is gruesomely fascinating museum having the best display of criminal punishment devices probably in all of Europe. Displays include an array chastity belts, masks of disgrace for gossips, a cage for cheating bakers, a neck brace for quarrelsome women and a beer-barrel pen for drunks.

The museum has three floors having a lot of history of crime and punishments. Punishments and crimes that were related to the culture of the people, traditions of how to reform them, and the methods used to deter the doing bad society things again. Some of the displays seem downright cruel, but most certainly effective. It is said to host the largest collection in Europe of antique objects, and also many documents to show the detail behind the period of using devices to punish, or penalties of abusers of society ills. Most of the items and documents date from the13th to the 19th centuries.

  • Best time to go early in morning as it can become busy. Really enjoyed the museum. Very informative. Liked the added touch to have everything translated into English n Japanese. Is also nice in cool and felt comfortable. They have a nice cafe. Well worth the 7.00 euros entrance fee..Would be nice to have an Audio Guide...

  • The best Museum in the whole Germany! I don't think I've ever felt such an excitement in any of the places I went. Loved every piece of it!

  • Since I have been there multiple times I have to go e it 5. There are descriptions in English. It's very interesting

  • Right in the heart of Rothenburg's city center, this multi-level museum displays torture devices, masks of humiliation, and so much more about the laws and punishment of medieval times. There's a lot to take in and to read. About 7 Euros entrance fee. At the end of the tour there's a section about witches and their role in medieval life; also, there is a small cafe.

  • Very interesting from start to finish. You wonder sometimes how we have got so far as a human race. The ideas from past centuries of how to punish someone are very imaginative !! Recommended. Best thing to do in beautiful Rothenburg!!
