This is not so much a museum as a gruesome reproduction of all things that illustrate the darker side of European history. Located in the Riverside Building of County Hall, with ghastly sounds seeping through the front door, this is a sort of haunted house for adults. It has won the Best Unusual Venue tourism award several times in the past. Wander through rooms depicting royal executions, vicious murders, various torture and execution devices, and even the Great Fire of London. The addition of Hollywood-style sound effects and lighting is also a nice touch. The newest addition is the Labyrinth of the Lost - the world's largest and scariest mirror maze. It's all unbelievably tacky, yet good fun in a morbid sort of way. Be warned, however, that its probably not suitable for small children, and all children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Opening hours vary seasonally.
