  • The Richmond Gaol was a place I'll never forget. Full of History, a blast from the past as soon as one enters. For a ghost explorer, like myself it's the perfect place for photos. But the most surprising part for me was the size, for a jail it is impressive. But it's a different must, on ones, to do list. It's an experience I'll never forget.
  • A small museum but will worth checking out. My 4 children really enjoyed going there.
  • I enjoyed the tour and found the information interesting. The isolation cells were horrible and I pity any poor soul who had to spend even 10 minutes locked in one. It make you feel pretty lucky to have been born is this day and age.
  • A bit smaller than we thought it would be with some areas closed off to public. Some very interesting history with colourful characters locked up there.
  • Very educational, no TV or Internet or any form of luxuries, amazing still structurally sound.
