The museum features devices for punishment and torture. Guided tours on the hour from 11am till 4pm. Hours: Thues-Fri 11am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday noon to 5.00pm.

Catacombs and Quarries of Paris - Fox Family channel's scariest places on earth did a feature in 2001 on the catacombs making them seem so scary and mysterious, that we don't know why they were built, but this site by a local knows why they were built. They are full of old bones and not very safe, they are so old and could collapse or you could fall down some hole or something. Find a guide (perhaps the author of this site?). I would like a map of them if it exists.

Romania Tours - If the site is working properly you can see all of the interesting tours they offer (view source on the tours page to get the links to the tours if you see a big gray empty box.) there's history, legend, halloween, and other trips. Some day I will go on one of these. Some of the tours are Dracula the Legend, Touch of Transylvania, Bite of Dracula, Dracula Myth and History, and there are some day trips if you are visiting the areas and don't want to shell out a few grand for a big long tour.
