Our Main Product is Emotion
We are the largest interactive historical museum in the U.S., occupying more than 6,000 square feet, with over 100 unique implements and devices on display. Enter the minds of fanatics, madmen, and murderers, and discover the world’s most detailed collection of confinement and torture devices. We believe that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, and have amassed an unprecedented collection of cruelty, based on historical documents and engravings, offering a chilling look into the darkest parts of human history.

In the world there are no more than 20 artists who create Microminiature art. These tiny masterpieces are usually placed in the eye of a needle, on a poppy seed, or on a cut of a human hair. They can not be seen with the naked eye – only under a microscope. In our Tiny Art Collection gallery you can see this unique form of world art.Visit Project
