Of course the children loved it! Only the ice cream was better. It still remains a stark reminder of the past.

Very illustrated and easy to understand museum. It is quite scary and we all had a very bad stomach ache afterwards but this was expectable concerning the issue at hand. The topics are diverse and all time periods are considered.
Very exciting place if you're not afraid of going into the scary and dark part of the italian history. Good experience but it was too hard to find the second building of the museum in the city because of the few signs and guidance.
Sensation seeking from the darkest part of the human mind. You've not thought enough about the history of Italy, gladiators, of slavery, imperialism and fascism. If you want to prevent people from doing these things again then you have to put that idea first. And start at the entrance. For me and many more people for this reason it's absolutely uninteresting. You made a sensation seeking event out of. In my opinion disgusting. And the fact that even children can enter even dangerous!
Great place to visit during day time and summer seasone. the place is little bit high but you have alot what to see :) good luck !
The Museum of TORTURE at PORTA GIOVANI St GIGINAMO FLORENCE ITALY, Itself explained the message, visited with family in end of MAY 2019.
