What happens to the maid who is suspected of poisoning her mistress?

Ask for the special audio tour for children (only in Dutch). There is also a lot to discover in the exhibition: how heavy is a block on your leg? And how do thumbscrews work? At the end of the visit, there is a game where they take on the role of a judge.
