A museum with rich interesting history
Jun 2021
It’s near the main street next to Rakoczi Memorial House. The building itself has a rich history: earlier two gotic civic houses were connected, it was a pottery workshop from 16. century, a prison and torture chamber from 17th to 19th century. It was named after a cruel executioner of Ferenc Rakoczi. Now it’s a museum and we could visit it. Unfortunatelly there’s only Slovakian information. I think it’s worth a visit.

A Must See

This is a perfect place to go. You learn a bit about the Kosice walls history and the prison itself is huge underground with a great atmosphere.

Cheap entry price. An interesting visit that takes around an hour. Well worth it. Welcoming staff at the site. It can get crowded when large groups are there.

The museum is definitely worth a visit for the cellars alone. we do not speak slovakian but the lady at the front desk tried to help us even leaving the reception to direct us to the start of the tour. we were shown a video
i’m english and given an english audio tour which was very useful. the visit lasts about and hour and it is very good value

Gruesome Past

Close to Craft Lane you will find an unassuming house, the only difference is that ir has bars at the window. For a few Euros you will get an introductory video then you can tour round the prison. The website said the museum was open from 9 am to 5 pm but when we went it was only open in the afternoon. But still worth a visit

You cannot enter from the street, however there is an entrance door. First you go to the Rakoczi Memorial house and the you an access the prison. Video introduction and then you can walk around. Really interesting. Ticket 2 EUR, or 4 EUR if you visit the Memorial House.

A historical look back on early Kosice…plus a few torture implements
Jul 2018 • Friends
Visiting a relative of my wife, she was showing us around. She had never visited this place. It is a local history museum that looks back at the origins of Kosice and how things have changed moving to the present. There are several subterranean chambers, some used as jail cells, some as torture chambers. It’s not as “polished” as a larger (well-funded) museum but it has its charm and is pretty good for a local effort. Recommended.

Glad we stumbled on this!

It was open on Sunday, and glad it was. Only 2 Euro to enter, great video introduction. Wish the displays were in English too, but it was interesting to try to imagine what life was like in the prison for the damned and the executioner alike. Lots of artifacts and you can go into the damp cells. Def worth a look!

Great video introduction
Feb 2018
You pay at the Building labelled Box Office. You are then taken to the ground floor of the prison, where you sit and watch an excellent video which enables you to understand the fascinating array of buildings in the complex. You then take yourself around the prison - and down to the eerie basement torture chamber - with the help of your audioguide. A very interesting way to spend an hour
