Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Interesting museum, despite the “title” the building boasts a range of interpretations associated with the city and doesn’t focus solely on the more gruesome matters.

My only issue was despite making it clear to the attendee (who locks you in the museum…: instructing us to call a mobile number to be released) that one of the party was a non Slovak speaking individual (kindly put the video on English) I wasn’t given a handset etc - I chose not to chase this, as I’m fortunate to have someone who can translate for me but should you be non native, I suggest making sure you get your handset!

A slight side note - the examples of torture devices (with illustrative photos taken in I’d guess the 1990s) are nothing in comparison to the seating provided for watching the introduction video. I’d admit to no end of heinous acts if forced to sit on one of them much longer!

Well worth a visit for a couple of hours.

You start with a short film explaining a little bit of history and you are then given a listening device which you follow on your trip round the old prison including a trip to the cellar cells.

There is lots to see.

TIP: buy a joint ticket so that you can see the photographic exhibition in the adjourning room.

I have visited the place in August 2022, on Saturday. Around 16:00 pm, I got an entrance ticket from Box Office (the main door is closed). The woman in a desk was lovely, she speak Polish, Russian and English as well. I paid 6 euro (Miklus Prison + Memorial House of Rackoczi). She took us herself with a small group of people to the prison building and left their around 45 minutes. The exhibition began with 5 min video in English language where you get to know history of the prison and also some info about city walls. 45 minutes in prison and around 30 min in Rákóczi Memorial House is enough to finish your tour.

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.

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

This place is great, very interesting , but no English signs just audioguide , which is not enough with so many interesting details, still it’s really worth to see.

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
