One of our central goals is to educate on law and the judiciary, and how they are necessary for a society to function. In this tour we explore different methods of punishments from the 17th century to today. The tour covers the building’s history as a slavery and criminal asylum. We also cover the executioner’s ax, Rinnan’s torture tools, and other criminal acts. All our tours are dialog based and we invite students and teachers to form their own tour through discussion and questions if desired.
The tour is adjusted for the age of the visitors. For sensitive or young visitors we focus on policing and incarceration as punishment.
Important points in the tour:
- Why is law and justice necessary for society to function?
- What is does it mean that a society is just and follows the rule of law?
- What kinds of punishments did they use before?
- What kinds of acts were criminal before, but not now? Why?
