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.

  • Great display. Very interesting and factual. We only had time for a brief visit but you could spend a few hours there if you wanted to read all the information connected with the displays.

  • 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...

  • This museum gives a good explanation of the development of torture and punishment in Europe from the middle ages to present. Most displays are in English and German, but not all. For a short or long visit, it is worth the time and money.

  • Very nice place. Alot of the exhibits were similar and all the cool stuff is at the beginning. Alot of reading, so only go if you're prepared to read a bit

  • 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!
