  • Very entertaining tour, a quick look through time in the history of dutch prisons.
  • Just WOW. It is a very interesting museum. Must see!
  • 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.
  • Interesting place.
