For only $10 it’s a bargain to learn so much in this interactive museum. Enjoyed the videos and sounds all around. Need perhaps 1.5 hours if you like to read most everything. Stick in the area and... more »
A great example of a state prison. A very informative tour laid out with videos and interpretive signs. You can walk all around this prison from the general population halls, Siberia, the isolation cells to the hanging room. It is very sobering as you peak into the past. There are some beautifully tended gardens on the grounds as well as a building that is just weaponry from the past. There are interactive features of your tour to enjoy as well.
Totally different from what they had before. The remodel is nice. There three floors of more than enough to keep you busy and kids love all the new interactive things. Some of the cool stuff they used to have has been reduced down from a whole exhibit to a few pieces. For example they had what looked like a full size Chinese apothecary in the old one but only a few select items now. If your wondering the two headed calf is still there.
