Texas Prison Museum Reviews
I didn't expect to enjoy visiting this museum as much as I did, but it was very educational and enjoyable. I would recommend it to everyone. more »
This was a nice stop on our visit. It’s a smaller museum with a lot of posters to read as opposed to physical exhibits, but it was affordable and we enjoyed it. more »
Great museum with lots of unique items including Old Sparky. The Prison Rodeo information was incredible to read about and seeing all the artifacts was really cool. Excellent museum to stop in and see especially if you enjoy history!
Very cool place. They have an assorted sections of all things related to Texas prisons. It was very fun to look at all the items and it's very well organized. My favorite was seeing the prison cell. I would definitely return.
