Went here mainly as a way to kill some time, which it did. The guide was informative, but there wasn't much to see. I guess for $5 it was ok.

Toured the museum with my three children. The tour guide was fantastic! We learned many new things and the tour was very entertaining. One of my children is a history buff, but the other two not so much. The tour guide did a great job...More

This is a small museum, but well worth the visit. Portions of the exterior walls of the jail are still present. The exhibits are very interesting, and we enjoyed the time spent there very much.
