  • Very fine museum in two different places. The first was about prison time around 1600-1700 speech and the latter around 1960-present. Great staff who informed and was genuinely interested that we all got good information, big and small.

  • Very interesting to get perspective on how prison officers worked through the ages. Had problems with technology for my guided tour. Had the technology worked better had a four awarded. Recommended.
