Lots of info in the cells and surrounding buildings. Quite interesting. Cold so wear a coat! There's a gentleman dressed in uniform in the cell blocks who is full of info and happy to help also.

This ‘review’ makes a mockery of the whole Tripadvisor website. I am sorry, but I cannot understand how you can leave a review when you did not even visit the Jail and I am surprised this review does not violate Tripadvisors guidelines? Surely the reviewer...More

Great displays, fun mock courtroom. Great volunteer staff in period costume. They have incredible knowledge which they are more than happy to share. You must visit and you will enjoy.
