The Torture Museum
The Torture Museum in Amsterdam is the place when you want to organize an interesting, exciting and educational company trip in Amsterdam. The international exhibition ‘Punishments and Verdicts in the Middle Ages’ provides a very lively and disturbing image of the painful past. Not even two centuries ago, a whole range of gruesome instruments of punishments were used to punish people, to exorcise demonic evil or to set a gruesome example. In the Torture Museum, you can view over 40 different instruments of punishment from several parts of Europe, each with their own story. A gallows field was built outside the city gate to deter criminals, the inquisitional chair was used to exterminate witchcraft and the aristocracy was punishment by means of a beheading with a sword or an ax. There are numerous instruments of punishment and each of them were used for different ends. Using these revolting instruments of punishment, governments at the time wanted to set a gruesome example and show that they had the right of possession over the bodies and lives of their subjects.
