About the

Medieval Crime Museum

We'll take you on a journey into an unfamiliar world of law throughout history.

At the Medieval Crime Museum, we tell the tale of more than 1,000 years of German and European legal history. Our exhibits – more than 50,000 of them – are witnesses to a bygone age, when harsh punishments and public humiliation were used to administer “law and order.” Alongside the history of criminal law and retribution, we shed light on persecution and witch-hunts as well as peculiar punishments for animals and criminal cases that caused a sensation.
