yowsers they sound like scary museums alright.... BUT I so want to go and visit them now!! The only one I have been to is the London Dungeon and that was too cheesy to be scary but I say that from the perspective of an adult - as a child I was scared silly at Yorvik Viking Centre by the singing fishermen coz I thought they were alive, I was too much of a wuss to go into the Chamber of Horrors at madame Tussauds and I was petrified by the exhibition on the Battle of Trafalgar because of the realistic depiction of a battle complete with cannon noises and men dying. However I was not phased at all by the museum of torture instruments in Ghent Castle .

Actually my most scariest experience remains a visit to a castle in Belgium, Laarne castle - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_of_Laarne. You went through a poky roof space into one of the medieval towers, a large and cold space which had a small exhibition on witches which they used to hold in the castle, complete with mannequin dressed in a wool smock, her hair shaved off and teeth pulled out. The atmosphere in that room was so oppressive I remember being relieved when I got out - it still frightens me today to think about it.
