It paid to stay on the right side of the law in the Middle Ages, as these four floors devoted to medieval style law and order prove. Chastity belts, shame masks, torture devices, a beer barrel-shaped stockade for drunks, a cage for bakers whose bread was too small or too light—sadists with a historical bent will be in seventh heaven. The 1395 hospital that houses the museum was redone in 1718, giving Rothenberg its only Baroque facade.
