  • I had such a great time exploring the old prison and taking a stroll through the car museum. Both tours had a great price. We went through on a chilly day and some parts of the prison were cold, so I suggest a sweater if you get cold easily. The staff were extremely friendly and had a lot of good information to share.
  • Awesome place. Inside the jail is cold. Bring a hoodie or something. Very historic and will visit again! Love the cars too. 2 things for one price! The gift shop is sweet too. A must see place.
