  • Exciting to get an insight into this ancient prison environment. I was there with my grandchildren who were very interested in the whole tour.

  • It's an interesting tour of the old fängelsemijön where you will be guided through headphones that tells you about the different locations in the prison. Everything in from the cells as those poor prisoners had to serve their sentences to how an execution could go to out on the prison yard. Horrible but true, but so is clearly worth a visit and it is good to have children for it is no direct scary moments but an interesting story from beginning to end ...

  • Prison Museum is divided into two parts. There is so much to learn about the history, among other things, Gävle and how prisons worked around in Sweden, making this their gets really interesting. For those who are really committed, you can also visit a local State archives where there are logs of detainees from including 1700 's.
