Medieval Crime Museum

Housed in the former headquarters of the Order of St John of Jerusalem, the Medieval Crime Museum (Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum) provides a fascinating introduction to the history of law, including how society deals with criminal behaviour and those on the margins of society. The exhibition includes a display of instruments of torture, punishment and execution alongside law books, seals and numerous engravings.
