  • It was a fun tour of the building and I learned a few thing along the way. Would recommend going on the tour with a small group because some areas are small and you will feel cramped. Not very toddler friendly because of areas being roped off and it has older items that they don't want touched.
  • Not worth the eight dollars it costs to get in. There are displays that are empty. There is no fluidity to any of the museum. Just feels as if no pride is taken in the museum. Only reason the museum gets two stars, is because the jail itself is still pretty cool looking. Even though the top half of the jail is not shown. Overall not worth it.
