  • A really well preserved site with a load of history. Well priced, interactive info wands were included in the entry fee. The kids had lots of fun getting in and out of the jail cells. And I loved all the textiles (quilts, clothing, etc. ).
  • Incredible building and it was set up really well. They gave a lot of details about life in the gaol and even prisoners.
  • Definitely a place to visit, for all ages. A real eye opener for me
  • Historically fascinating. Worth a visit
  • Behind the Bars was very well done...educational and entertaining
