THE HAGUE: Prison Gate

Museum de Gevangenpoort, [5]. De Gevangenpoort (Prison gate) was built in 1370 as an entrance gate to the Binnenhof complex; from 1420 it was also used a prison, and has been used as a such up to early in the 19th century. In 1853 it was converted into a museum. For a taste of medieval justice, have a look at this museum's collection of torture instruments and enter its original medieval cell blocks.
