  • Visited this place twice. The tour guides were excellent. It is a unique piece of history and what I liked most was that it didn't feel like a museum. It still had a lot of grit and it's a truly uniqu...  more »

  • It was a great visit. Very intriguing and interesting. We had a private tour from someone who actually did time there back in the 80s. To me the most intriguing part was the old graveyard. It's my plan to try and get a hold on one of the ancestors of the Chinese gentleman that was buried there in the 20s. It is my hope that he has family either here or back in China. I would just like to let them know that someone will take care of his grave. All in all a good place to tour.
  • Had a private tour from an old convict who had done time there. It was an awesome experience we went all over the place. He told me about how they used to live there without any heat and people would be getting sick and die. Not just old people but young people. Stopped and looked at the old warden's house, it's a shame that the public is allowing such a beautiful old building to go into decay.
  • Pretty cool place to visit. Place is deteriorating though. The guide was very informative
  • Awesome! So glad we stopped for the tour! The history was very interesting and the staff/ tour guide were friendly and informed. Worth every penny of the $10 and we even saw a ghost! 👻 definitely haunted 100%
  • We had a lovely time guide who was very informative. The prison had lots of rich history.
