Off the beaten track sort of museum might not be the first thing you head to when visiting Turin, but this was one of the few museums open on Monday, so convenience won. Well organised displays, we would welcome introductory video in English or other...More

We decided to go to this museum as I have an interest in criminal psychology and have studied Lombroso's theories in the past. On the day we attended it was free entry (not sure why, but not complaining!) The museum has cards throughout in English...More

I've been to many weird places in the world: the Parisian catacombs, the Villisca axe house, etc., but this is surely one of the strangest. On display are hundreds of skulls, death masks, tools of murder, and more. One unsettling, yet fascinating display, shows the...More

The topic (history of criminology) is certainly not amongst the unique ones if it comes to museums, and it is outside of my normal range of interest. However, happening to be in this museum, I was really impressed by the richness of the stories they...More

I'been advised by an Italian friend to visit this museum, knowing my interest in criminology. Lombroso's theory of anthropological criminology can be considered controversial but he clearly set the framework for future psychology and anthropological studies. You will see Lombroso's skeleton as well as he...More
