A truly emotional experience. Hard to comprehend some of the artefacts and stories on display here. A damming indictment of humanity really. All displays are tastefully and respectfully presented. W well worth the visit, allow about 90 mins. Four euros entry fee.

Hi. Not necessary to pre-book tours. Special rates for senior citizens - a couple of Euros - but you have to ask!. About ten minutes walk from the Cathedral square. Headphones and a running commentary in English is available for a small charge too. Lots of pamphlets for free and books for sale also. All in English. Gruesome and thought-provoking but well worth the visit.
