Torture museums

Torture museums are always a popular tourist attraction, and most countries have at least one. Stocks and pillories can often be found in these museums. Not technically torture devices, but I'm not going to quibble.

This museum (known as the Brujas de la Alcarria in Spanish) is devoted to the history of the persecution of alleged witches by the Spanish Inquisition. The museum is based in Monasteria de Monsalud Corcoles in Spain (not far from Madrid). In addition to general information on this theme, the museum contains virtual simulators that give visitors an impression of what it is like to be burned at the stake or publicly pilloried. The photos below show visitors trying out the virtual pillory experience.

The photos below were taken at a re-enactment at the Brujas de la Alcarria (the Witches of the Alcarria).
