    The museum gives a thorough explanation of how punishing and caught hold in the course of the years has evolved. One makes use of several visual resources and attributes. The restaurant had a friendly control. We do have still the tour of "the Red-tiled" done this is a must for 2 euros more. The museum and the tour of the Red-tiled is good to visit with a wheelchair.

    Duty: modern warfare 3 scavenger hunts, for any age, something inside the Red-tiled, a real used prison, trip with the boevenbus and lots of fun facts of all facets of the prison system. In short, a full-day program and you do not have time to get bored!

    A nice museum. but it is very focused on the prison system and not on the prehistory of the paupers. Too bad, only that they do not accept MJ on your phone. Is a matter of will. They should then the number typing into the computer and that they wanted to do.

    Well documented and presented, although in Dutch only. Unless you are interested in history of Veenhuizen and prisons, it's not recommended. There's an English brochure/guide but it's so-so.

    Nice museum located in an old prison. The building is surrounded by nature and some nice villages. The nicest part was the optional visit to the 2e prison building that was used until a few years ago.
