Hosted in the old prison, this exhibition is a very interesting collection on women’s stories and experiences. Exhibits are well maintained and informative. You can get around in about an hour. Quite a lot of reading - would not recommend for families.

Well worth the stop over to go thru the museum. It is located in the old jail and you get to go thru the cell blocks as well. My daughter and I found this fascinating. The lady at reception was very informative.
