  • we had a great time at this wonderful time looking at a huge collection at the littledean Jail so much to see I was wandering around like a child in ore of the items on show but I am now 60 years but ...  more »
  • Over the years I have visited this museum several times, going back to when the core collection was housed in Newent. So why only give a one star rating? Well way back then, it was a bit of a place of...  more »

  • This place is just bizarre. There's a lot of quirky stuff here but be warned there are some highly graphic images of recent torture. There is no intelligible educational narrative and instead it's just claustrophic with mismatched historical items, lifesize pop culture figurines and articles about celebrity scandal everywhere (including on the ceiling). There is one room set aside with additional warning- it's just celebrity nudity which by the time you get that far into the jail is totally blasĂ©. All in all, worth a visit to see it, but not for the faint of heart and not for your typical museum experience. I absolutely wouldn't recommend kids go based on the extremely graphic images. There are plenty of warnings outside and yet still we saw plenty of kids in there..
  • Interesting place went for the ghost night. Artifacts very unusual.
  • Fascinating place. Remember people this stuff happened!
  • Museum of the dark past with a touch of modern celebrities. Not really suitable for children as they will get nightmares. Also it's cash only. Could do with a little cafĂ©. Great experience
  • Today was the first visit, absolutely amazing and full of history. The display is very unique and a one off. A must see history museum
