Foltermuseum 'De Oude Steen' (Torture Museum)
Museums and attractions Indoor

In the beautifully renovated – and probably oldest stone – building in Bruges, you can discover a remarkable and spine-chilling collection of instruments of torture and learn about the history of law, order and justice in the city. Guaranteed to make you reflect on the complex relationship between good and evil, and how the justice in ancient and medieval times continuously balanced on the border between violence and righteousness.
