Musee de L'Inquisition, Carcassonne Center

Learn how our predecessors got "confessions" out of religious prisoners at Musee de L'Inquisition. This small museum is dedicated to the inhumane torture devices and methods used during the Holy Inquisition. The instruments on display forced unfortunate captives to convert or die. It's a good stop for people interested in religious history, forensics, or the chronology of man's inhumanity to man.
