The Museum consists of 2 parts - the main floor and other location which more looks like Wax Museum (one ticket covers both). My first thought was about this museum - don't take a children with you at least under 13 (for them is another...More

Amateurish dated small museum. . 1970s mannequins dressed in homemade period costumes. Minimal explanations of any depth. Some instruments of the inquisition but no real context. reasonable video but otherwise a wasted opportunity to inform and not particularly entertaining. Split on 2 sites can't even...More

One of the first Inquisition's took place in and around Carcassonne when the Cathurs were persecuted and destroyed. This museum makes a pretty good attempt at telling the story however it essential that you go and read the information rather than expect to be thrilled...More

Although the things on display have a sinister and a dreadful purpose . To the curious of mind it is a one time visit. Grand kids loved it with lots of squeaks. An Giggles. I think a bit pricey for larger family's.

Sure you got to see life size replicas of instruments of torture, but the entire museum was so poorly put together it felt like a scam to be charged €9.50 (more than visiting the inner castle and ramparts). You're not allowed to take pictures and...More

This was interesting in a historical sense if somewhat gruesome. Not done in a particularly high tech or professional way.

I should have stuck with my first reaction when we got here, but after a fabulous castle tour 16 euros, we had to spend 19euros to enter this ridiculous garden shed full of sad relics! What a total mistake. The castle tour took us 2...More
