  • 3 floors of exhibits, covering the history of psychiatric medicine, the history of the Glore Psychiatric Hospital, and all of the jobs that were available to the patients of this hospital. My wife and I stayed for about 2 hours, and that gave us time to really look at, and read about, all of the exhibits. For an entrance fee of only $6, you can't go wrong here.
  • Very cool and interesting. Also kind of creepy. But a great place to visit and learn
  • Very interesting and inexpensive to visit. I love how they recreated a bunch of the...um....well....treatments with mannequins. If that place was lit worse it would be the a great place to film a horror flick.
  • Visited this museum with my wife. Very interesting to see so many photo and read how care used to be provided. Recommended trip to see something alittle different
  • The secrets room was so depressing. I wish that you could buy a weekend pass because there's so much to read and see. Its not as creepy as i was expecting more informative but i Definitely would go again.
