  • We enjoyed an hour touring this unique museum. There are interesting stories and exhibits that highlight this little-known facet of life in a boom town. The cost is reasonable and the clerk was...  more »

  • What a fun experience. Cripple Creek is such a quaint town and visiting jail was lile going back in time. We paid $3 a ticket which is a steal. You can explore on your own and take lots of fun...  more »

  • This place is great! I never knew that there were ever such thing as the Colorado Rangers! They allow you to tour the jail, showing you some history as well as the men's, women's, and, yes, children's parts of the jail. For those of you who are handicapped, they may have parking for you but from there you are on your own. They don't have a ramp or elevator or any other accessable features. The tour was not that big for as many inmates as they could hold. Take the tour it is worth the few bucks it takes to get in. Oh, and just in case you are into the paranormal, the ghost busters have been there too... Tour at your own risk!
  • I worked in this facility as a young law man. The preservation work they have completed is impeccable. Be sure and visit separate women's holding facility upstairs.
  • Very intriguing the way they held prisoners in jails back in that time of day to which I know one person who was pretty much the last person held in custody in that Facility Who is a good friend of mine.
  • Great museum. The reenactment was really fun to watch. Interesting to view. A must see.
  • What a great museum. Our tour guide Ralph was amazing and kept us learning and entertained. Highly recommended for history fans and ghost/true crime fans.
