  • The Gaol tour is well set out & very interesting. There are artefacts on display, well marked rooms/cells and it is easily accessible for all ages.  more »
  • The buildings are very well preserved and the self-guiding leaflet gives ample information - it would have been good to be able to keep it instead of handing it back. I don't think there was an option...  more »
  • We went here after hearing people talk about it in work and high expectations. The gaol is very well maintained and a friendly woman gave us our tickets but I feel there isn’t much in there. The same ...  more »

  • 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.
  • This was amazing. It was in much better condition than Port Arthur so you can really see what it would have been like. Gift shop has cool stuff (that Port Arthur use to have). Kids get to look for items on a map and get a prize. 10bucks entry for an adult was the cheapest place we went to.
  • Yeah, I'm a sucker for an old Gaol... This one also has 'hide-n-seek' activities to keep the kids busy so that you can go through at your own pace and not be harassed by them every 10 seconds to leave. Such a great idea that actually worked!!
  • 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.
