The Amsterdam Dungeon Exhibits include:

Council of Blood
The Council of Blood at The Amsterdam Dungeon is a glimpse into 16th century Holland and the primeval law enforcement that encased everyone's life in fear.
Law breakers were subjected to hideous punishment, sometimes involving mutilation, burning and other torturous methods that rarely reflected the severity of the crime.

One example of this fear-inducing extremity was the Council of Blood, created in 1567 by Prince Alva. Cases of suspected treason and heresy were sent to this tribunal for their fate to be creatively sealed.

A few of the ingenious methods for 'disposing' of these people are demonstrated at the Amsterdam Dungeon. You will be shocked and appalled at the savage brutality employed by the Council of Blood. Wince and gasp in awe of the sheer scale of horror that was once common place.

Labyrinth of the Lost
Amsterdam, before 1579, was a treacherous maze at night with no lighting to guide citizens through the streets. Narrow alleys and side-streets lead to precarious ledges and canals which many unfortunate people would accidentally stumble across. Drownings were common and Night Watchmen with lanterns were employed to help guide people through the dark.

The Amsterdam Dungeon challenges you with the notorious Labyrinth of the Lost. Enter at your own peril! The Labyrinth twists and turns in a dizzying maze of passages that sucks the spirit from adventurers foolhardy enough to think they can get the better of it.

Beware the Night Watchmen who have become unscrupulous with the disdain for their job and the poor wages. Instead of providing help they are now another threat in the darkness of Amsterdam's Labyrinth.

The VOC was the biggest trading company in the world throughout the 17th and 18th century. Ships crewed by up to 200 men sailed the globe transporting goods. A life at sea in those days, however, was a precarious affair and it was rare for journeys to be completed without suffering a few casualties on the way.

There were no vaccinations against foreign diseases and ship medical facilities were almost non-existent. Crews contracted Scurvy, Typhus, Dysentry, Pleurisy and Pneumonia, amongst other afflictions and would commonly perish before even reaching land.

Injuries and ailments requiring surgery would likely be dealt with by simply removing the afflicted limb! This treatment is what lead to today's stereotype of sailors with peg legs and hook hands.

Learn about the VOC at the Amsterdam Dungeon and cringe at the horrifying conditions these voyages involved.
