  • I visited the museum last week and the staff were extremely helpful. I needed some photos of the prison and they went above and beyond to enable me to get some great shots. I would just like to thank them both for all their help. Great place to visit and even better staff!!!
  • Great place to while away a couple of hours, informative displays and a great insight into prison life. Free parking too.
  • If you want to learn about HMP Dartmoor past and present this is the place to go. A lot to read and look at.
  • Really good and informative
  • Currently closed because of asbestos. No reopening date available. In the current climate it will probably never reopen.
