    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.

    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.

Prison Gate Museum is part of the route 'A Royal Walk'

The Hague and the House of Orange, go hand in hand. And it's been that way for more than four hundre...
