We made our way back into the town square, and stopped at the torture museum first, it was in my opinion pretty lame, I was hoping for less cheese and more information and maybe some actual artifacts, not just remade devices and wax heads on spikes. There were a few neat little scenes, but all in all, it was pretty dull. I was hoping for a bit more from the ...
