  • We purchased t shirts in the gift shop and toured the museum. They have lots of items the the prisoners made. Also pictures of all the famous people who served time in the penitentiary  more »
  • I look visiting state Capitol buildings. I was surprised at how big the museum is for the building. It's worth it to check out.  more »

  • Definitely worth the trip and a fun historical city to spend an evening in. There is a reason this Capitol Building is considered one of the most renowned in the US. Definitely take the free tour, is is not very long and very informative. Plus you get to see some cool governmental areas of the Capitol not always open to the public.
  • Really cool and free activity. If you live nearby and haven't been, I recommend checking it out. Lots of great history!
