We noticed the museum as it’s right by Charles Bridge. It caught our attention so we decided to go in and see what it was about. It’s pretty simple, spread over 3 floors. It’s not particularly interactive. Lots of medieval torture implements on display and...More

I liked the location of the museum, is few walking minutes from the Astronomical clock. It takes 20 minutes to see the complete artifacts but it took me longer because I like to be on the details. If you want to have a more thrilling...More

We popped in here on our last day when we’d run out of things to do and primarily to get out of the rain ... but we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it ! At 120 crowns which is roughly £5 it’s...More

I found it pretty interesting to see all the different instruments and read about the cruel torture that took place, hard to imagine things like that actually happened 😱 A bit warm in the building but it was over 30 degrees outside so.. No AC.

There are not 2 torture museums at the entrance to the Charles Bridge but people have started a separate link under 'Museum of Medieval Torture'' Something you either are interested in or not.

This is certainly the worst museum I have ever visited - it was pure torture to think I paid to visit such a terrible place

This museum had some interesting information, there were three floors each with a similar set-up. No major wow factor for me personally... but my friends seemed to enjoy it a lot! It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it but there was nothing incredibly memorable in...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
