This is a great set of museum, the ticket covers the prison museum, auto museum, and some additional museums all within walking distance of each other. The Prison Museum included a self-guided tour book that was very thorough and informational. The tour explored both the inside and outside grounds of the prison, focusing on both the people who were in the prison and the evolution of the prison itself. This was a great roadside stop.
Really interesting prison with an interesting history. You should definitely take the informative tour!
This place have an amazing history and the Ghost Tour is awesome.
