Medieval Torture Museum Tours and Activities

Medieval Torture Museum
Test your mettle at St. Augustine's Medieval Torture Museum, the first museum of its kind in the United States. This trove of recreated torture instruments, enriched by academic research, demonstrates just how much suffering humanity infllicted during the Middle Ages. Uncover how these deadly objects were employed and why they were used.

The Basics
An experiential exhibit, you not only view torture instruments on display, but you also walk through a gallery space that recreates the use of chilling torture devices of the Middle Ages. Prebook entry to this popular attraction, check out the wax figures and torture devices, and learn how the devices were used. For an activity-packed day, pair a museum visit with a stop at the Micro Masterpieces Art Gallery, or nearby historic attractions, such as the Colonial Quarter.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • History fans find several hundred objects, filling 4,000 square feet (371.6 square meters) of gallery space.
  • The Medieval Torture Museum is not a good choice for the squeamish.
  • Families with young kids should skip the gruesome Medieval Torture Museum.

How to Get There

The Medieval Torture Museum is located in downtown St. Augustine, Fla., at 100 Saint George Street. The most convenient way to reach the museum is to drive. Paid street and garage parking is nearby. If you prefer not to drive, take a hop-on hop-off trolley tour; most tours stop near popular downtown St. Augustine sights.

When to Get There

The Medieval Torture Museum is open daily, year-round. There's no bad time to visit Florida, but keep in mind that Florida summers are known for their heat and humidity. Expect crowds if you visit over winter holidays, since Florida is a popular winter getaway destination.
