  • Very interesting full of information. The gift shop is the best everything is inmate made and very inexpensive. They have everything. Very nice place to visit if you're in the area.
  • A MUST VISIT. Colorado history at its finest! Expect to spend 2-4 hours taking in the vast collection of memorabilia and artifacts. The gas chamber on-site is an eye-opener. many children could benefit from a visit to this facility. Check Groupon for discount tickets. Buy the $1 tour book. It supports the museum and it is a great tool for a self-guided tour. There is a park nearby, so make it a picnic day!
  • Small building but a lot of history. The town of Canon City needs to advertise more about this museum. They also sell baked goods that inmates bake. The baked goods are delish!!! MORE ADVERTISEMENT!!! Summer and vacations are coming up soon...bring in the customers.
  • Very interesting find. Staff was wonderful. If u live in Colorado this should be a bucket list destination.
  • Amazing place! Recommend this to anyone interested in history. The gift shop is awesome.
