Don Juan and Miguel have created and currently run two dungeon museums at two different festivals.
Our first dungeon opened in 1996 at the Carolina Renaissance Festival and was an instant hit. In the summer of
2003 we built our second Dungeon Museum at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. Our current plans are to build
and open our latest version of the Dungeon Museam to open at the Sterling NY Renaissance Festival for the
The dungeons are 1800 square feet each, and their intent is to educate those that pass through
as to what a real dungeon would actually feel like if one could walk along the internal passages unprovoked.
Whereas other dungeons "go for the gore" Don Juan and Miguel feel that the simple stark reality of the fact
that these edifices even had a place in existence is enough reason to recreate them.
And recreate them they do! They use blacksmiths, stone masons, anyone that can create as close to the
original building or torture effect that they need. Don Juan actually constructs many of the buildings himself,
and Miguel has used his stone masonry skills inside on many of the exhibits.
