Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was looking for something to do on the way home from Irvington and saw this on Tripadvisor. So happy we went! It was REALLY well done, and so interesting. I grew up being awed and intimidated by the thought of Sing Sing Prison and the depictions of the life there by the inmates verify that it was every bit as horrible as I thought, esp. in the 1800's. The replicas of the cells are claustrophobic and the 1820 cell feels like a coffiin! Really scary. The replica electric chair looks so barbaric, hard to believe so many were killed in this manner. The Aqueduct exhibit was very good as well. Will definitely go back

This is a neat little exhibit attached to the Ossining Recreation Center. Just a $5 taxi ride up the hill from the train station. It's a small exhibit that I can't imagine spending more than 20-30 minutes at. There are kids around as it is an active Rec center so it might be quieter during the day as compared to the afternoon when I went through. The shiv and cell examples are interesting. If you're in the area, check it out, but don't expect a long visit.

It was small, but free. It didn’t take long together through it. The double arches for the aqueduct is right behind the building. That was very interesting.

We n our trip up the northern part of the old Croton aqueduct we stopped at the Ossining community center which houses an exhibit on Singsing. Interactive and informative - well done and worth the detour. Free admission

Located in the Ossining rec center, it is so informative and interesting! a prisoner's cell. a copy of the electric chair! History about the men and WOMEN'S prison (that no longer exists in Ossining) If you love "stranger than fiction" stories, this will fascinate you. Then be sure to walk the aqueduct gorge!!!! Featured in Spike Lee's new movie about the KKK. beautiful. the walkway is right off the museum's parking lot!

Small, but nicely done for the space they have. Can't wait for larger permanent museum to be funded and built.

a history & Hudson Valley Region exhibit, self-walk/read, pictures. I work in the Ossining Community Center, where this Exhibit/museum is and many visitors/tourist take in the site. also there is Old Croton Aqueduct info and other Ossining topics. and seasonal Westchester County info on tables/shelf. Free exhibit and parking. & short drive to actual Sing Sing Prison. Was a Jeopardy answer once.

For a history nut like me, this place was great. Sing Sing just Emulates prison history and I loved it. You must come here, It was well with the time. I got thru in about an hour and fifteen minutes. Great!

Looks Like A Middle School Student Project.
I think Sing Sing reeks of history, but this is a small show in a cramped space. I had high expectations and went through it in a few minutes. Not really professional. Could use video clips to explore interests of the visitor. Sorry, this could be much better.
