The torture museum of Bruges

De Oude Steen or in English the Old Stone is one of the oldest prisons in Europe.The building dates from back to the 11 century and the cellar is the oldest one in Bruges. The building is recently been restored and is now a very interesting but spooky museum, a torture museum.


The museum houses a remarkable collection of torture artifacts. Life-like wax figures are used to explain the use and function of the devices. The museum sheds a light on the controversial system of the torture history in the name of Justice, Church and beliefs.

You can find the museum at this address: Wollestraat 29, Bruges.
