One of our family vacations we spent in Gasteinertal (Austria). The entrance to the valley is guarded by an ancient watchtower. One day we decided to pay a visit to a small museum located in the tower.
The guided tour was quite short – something about 15-20 minutes. There’s actually not much to see in and around, but their collection of the genuine medieval props is indeed quite interesting.
For example, these strange items. Our “advanced” kids (despite extensive Internet and TV experience) could not recognize male and female chastity belts in these devices, which from the first sight look like torture or inquisition equipment. So, they asked, we explained.
Some interesting points.
