A museum with information on the persecution of the Cathars by the Catholic Church; with some rather grim exhibits showing you how the Catholic Inquisition tortured those who dared to disagree with the Pope!

It's embarrassingly poor. The 'exhibits' are not even genuine, looks like some DIY person has done it - not worth a visit if it were free. save 9 euro don't go

A strange place to visit yet informative. As to the authenticity of the displays I wonder. Quite disturbing that people can think of creating these types of things

A series of rooms with manikins in dodgy outfits, a few "interesting" torture devices and whilst the museum does convey how vile human being used to be to each other (Not unlike the middle east today) it is generally pretty lame

Quite interesting for people who are studying medieval times, because this museum has some real antique devices, but you might be in a state of schock at the end...
