We had this on our list of things we actually wanted to see in the city and were so disappointed. At €7.50 for admission, it's way over priced and not worth it. We were through in 10/15 mins having read everything. There should at least...More

We saw this museum advertised about a mile away from its location. Not having anything specific planned to do on our short stay in Amsterdam, we thought it would be a great place to visit. Upon arriving we paid about 7.50 euros each to enter...More

Very small museum with some interesting things . However unless you stop & read everything about the exhibits , then you could be out in 10 minutes . Not a cheap place to visit & not good for kids who wouldn't bother reading the texts...More

We were wandering around the city when we came upon the Torture Museum. For €7.50 entry it's not a bad way to kill like 30 minutes, seeing the different types of torture devices and a brief explanation beside them. I was chuffed to see the...More

I agree with the reviews already listed but wish I read them before I was drawn into paying 4x7.50 Euro for our visit. We were in and out in about 10-15 minutes. Some of the exhibits were interesting, but very simple format. All written paragraphs...More

The museum was boring. Mostly just information written on signs (some of which had no "artefacts" or even pictures from them). Way overpriced for what it was.

Stopped in here after seeing it walking around Amsterdam, not only is it short but the torture items aren’t even real they are imitations some made of plastic. The information is good beside each exhibit but at €7.50 it didn’t seem worth the money to...More

Short and informative tour costing €7.50 -lots of exhibits to see some quite scary lots of reading to do and no interactive stuff. Perfect for killing half an hour but I wouldn’t particularly recommend. Gave me a few ideas with regards my cheeky wife though!

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yeah! It really is a place where they take your money and hardly give you anything in return!
