The individual testimonials were really interesting and impressive. Really great that we could hear this in German. Unfortunately the videos were in Dutch with English subtitles. These should also be reproduced in German via the audio guide if the language is offered as available. The staff was really helpful and engaging!

We were thrilled with the museum visit! Recommended for anyone who is a little interested in history. One prison cell is still in its original state, which is very worth seeing. and, however, I find it unsuitable for small children due to the reports from the prisoners there. The staff is very nice and helpful. A lot of background information can be called up with the Audi Guide, also in German. Great value for money and interesting visit!
