5/5 (44 Des avis)

Expérience fantastique: Definitely worth a visit if you're into culture like me! The price includes a guided tour. Mine was in Dutch, but I assume they do English speaking tours as well. From the outside you wouldn't expect that this small, but yet beautiful building, has such a cruel history. Although back in the days, people did their best to bring justice in the country by setting up prisons like these. The guide explains everything and shows you the difference of cells, occupied by the lower and the rich class. Very interesting.

Expérience fantastique: Interesting place to acknowledge more about how have people been treated when not obeying the law and overall the govern of the country. There's a really interesting interactive game with questions which is showing you specific cases and you learn more about them when answering. Another cool thing is about the pictures - you can look out the windows fascing Binnenhof and imagine the described scenes happening.

Expérience fantastique: I recommend to those who visit the city, it is interesting to see, pictures can be taken.

Expérience fantastique: Cleverly laid out, like two museums in one. The first part, with the characters of the time, gets a little silly, but the game at the end will prove you learned a lot. The second part really dives into the nature of prison and torture, the former serving only the latter and not as its own form of punishment. Worth the visit and price of admission.

Expérience fantastique: Very interesting museum with lots of cool items from the original jail/ dungeon and torture room on display & a great audio guide. Staff were very friendly & helpful. The only thing that could be improved is I feel the bathrooms could be a little cleaner. Other than that, it's a really great, fun museum to visit.

Expérience positive: It was a nice experience and this would help you to know about the History and the way punishments used to carry out. It’s not a huge building as it’s quite small as compared to other Jail buildings but still I recommend to visit this. Audio recordings are really helpful and the way they tell the stories is fantastic.

Expérience fantastique: Really worth visiting, it is in excellent condition and you can really sense what it must have been like to be in prison in the Dark Ages. People and guides are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!

Expérience fantastique: A very well thought arrangement of viewing plan for the museum. A single story, about a maid being subjected to the judicial system in the past for supposed poisoning in food, guides the visitor to the various elements of the museum. We were given a tour by Mr. Han who was very passionate in his explanation and was very friendly.

Expérience fantastique: Beautiful old building where until 1860 prisoners were kept and prosacuted. You can vist the old cell blocks and the more convenient ones for knights and women. They also have a lot of original torture instrument and other equipement that was used to interrogate prisoners. Also information concerning one of the most famous prisoner, Cornelis de Witt.

Expérience fantastique: This is great! Learning about history by being lead around a creepy prison and torture chamber. The guide knew a lot about the hague's history and the history about the building. Recommend!

Bas Jacobs 4 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Awesome museum with great tourguides that tell the tale of torture in Den Haag during the 1600 -1800 period. Visited during the museum night, so the tour was a bit shortened to fit the theme, looking forward to visit again to see the torture room!

Expérience fantastique: The Gevangenpoort (Prisoner's Gate) is a former gate and medieval prison on the Buitenhof in The Hague, Netherlands. It is situated next to the 18th-century art gallery founded by William V, Prince of Orange in 1774 known as the Prince William V Gallery.

K. Wang 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Nice tour, would be better if can introduced in Dutch and English, or at least short explanations of interesting parts in English

Natacha Hansen 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Probably the best guide in Den Haag! The ticket includes a guided tour, which is the only way to see the museum. The guide was excellent at speaking English and really involved the whole group and answered questions very well. The guide lasted just under an hour and flee by so quickly. It was a great way to learn about Den Haag’s history, and had so many original artefacts there which were kept in really good condition. Definitely a recommendation!

Harry K 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Amazing place, a historical must-see. Tours in English are also available, call them to check the schedule. Great insight into the medieval legal system, living conditions of inmates as well as a room which served as the classy cell for the upper-class prisoners. The tour ends with a detailed explanation of the torture methods and devices used back in the day, in the actual room where the torture took place. Definitely not a place for children or younger visitors.

Terri-Ann dela Cruz 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Very interesting visit to the prison museum! It gave a good background of how the Dutch prison system started - makes one realize that even in prison systems - there's a definite, undeniable gap between the rich and the poor. A tour around the place also shows guests different machines / tools used for torturing prisoners for information. It's quite bizarre and interestingly morbid! If you're just walking around the city, you'll barely notice it! Take some time to look for this place and pay a visit.
