  • Went with a group of 12 to do a "ghost-hunt". Whilst there is a load of memorabilia linked to the police, jail history and black magic/occult (as there was a witch tried there), the interesting buildi...  more »
  • If you're a regular museum visitor, don't expect scholarly research as much of the display is photocopies of tabloid newspapers covering murder, scandals and the kind of celebrity sensationalist smut ...  more »

  • A truly bizarre and strangely wonderful exhibition of artifacts, photos and displays relating to criminals, rogues and badly behaved punk rock stars! I'm not sure what else to say other than you musn't miss the 'bonking monkeys' or the small but shocking Michael Jackson with children display, made from action figures! Actually a great deal of very interesting stuff and well worth a good luck around. I bet you won't have seen anything like it before...
  • You can take this place as two ways, rooms filled with random stuff you won't find interesting or a varied collection of items, articles, specimens of collectable memorabilia relating to crime through the ages. There is of course some very offensive and mature content here and would not recommend to people with a weak stomach or have children. Would suggest being able to understand the context of some of the articles and try not to take it face value. However we managed to spend a few hours looking and going through jail and seeing it all! Well worth if you have a interest in criminology or history. A well worth A+ attraction
  • You can't hate this place!. This guy is not afraid to show the public what other museums won't.... if you are ever down this way please go but also don't take the kids with you like I did.... therapy isn't cheap but there's hope 😂
  • Weirdest place I've been to lately. But nonetheless interesting. I would recommend.
  • Quirky little jail...and as for the other reviews yes lots of stuff and yes a place to house the owners collection but the website says not suitable for children and if offended don't go...but if you are into crime and the unusual then its the perfect place...not the usual run of the mill museum...
