About Medieval Criminal And Torture Museum, San Gimignano

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.

  • 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

  • Very exciting place if you're not afraid of going into the scary and dark part of the italian history. Good experience but it was too hard to find the second building of the museum in the city because of the few signs and guidance.

  • Very interesting on the inside I absolutely loved it here.

  • One just can't believe how obscure people's imagination can be to hurt other people.
