  • I am sucker for any museum and this did not disappoint. It was a little creepy and weird but also interesting and sad. They have gift shop with items made by prisoners and even Ol Sparky. Admission was only 5 dollars and it definitely worth the visit.

  • Its certainly worth stopping for 30 minutes and paying $5 to check out at least once. Whether you are for or against the death penalty, tough on crime or in favor of rehabilitation, there is something here to challenge you both emotionally and intellectually, as well as teach you something about the Texas prison system.
  • Interesting place. A must see if your staying in the area
  • This was a fun way to waste an hour. Worth the look, and pretty interesting. It's a little on the small side, but every square inch is packed with something to look at and/or read.
