Medieval Criminal And Torture Museum - Review
As the name suggests, this museum is unique and it exhibits instruments of torture and how they used to be used in the region years ago. Each and every room in here looks quite creepy. This is a nice break from all the churches and cathedrals of the city and also quite interesting.
- The whole museum is divided into two broad sections- one for the torture instruments and other based on death penalties.
- You get bookings for both from the same place.
- The spookiness sometimes is quite engrossing as it also attracts children and it is also a good way to get an insight into the bad side of the history.

Medieval Criminal And Torture Museum, San Gimignano Reviews
This is a franchise museum line over Italy and brother. Museums is terrifying exhibiting the beast nature of the humankind. Do not visit the museum before sleep. Some kids feels extremely upset so I do not recommend this museum for sensitive souls.
Great place to visit during day time and summer seasone. the place is little bit high but you have alot what to see :) good luck !
san gimignano joli village.
A very interesting collection of torture instruments combined with detailed descriptions of torture methods throughout history. The ticket is combined with the museum of death penalty, which is about 500 meters further down the road. Both museums are in medieval buildings with bare stone walls. The light is dim, and only the display cases are illuminated, which generate a rather spooky atmosphere. One should the take time to read all panels, since they provide a lot of information. A number of wax figures and old stitches show how certain tortures were executed and give a pretty gruesome picture of the consequences for the victims. It is surprising that some (naive?) parents drag their little ones through this museum. This is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Small but worth a visit to get out of the hot sun. Plus ticket gets you into another museum. Not for the squeamish
