I grew up in the former Summer House right across from this museum. My dad was kind to the owner's wife whenever she needed to make a U-Turn at the Opera House. Out of her kindness, she allowed me and my siblings to have free tours. I've always loved this museum. I highly recommend everyone to go if you haven't already. I've taken tours one after another. I always had fun there. Such mysteries and knowledge to take in. The inside of this Old Jail is like the pages of a book. Every time you read it, the more you notice, learn, and think of. The tour guides all enjoyed my company, although you'd never expect a seven year old little girl to take such fascination to this kind of scenery. I gave five stars because of the experiences I've had in that museum. Once again, I highly recommend everyone to go to this place. It will not let you down.
Great experience, awesome tour guide. If you ever go to JT, visit this place.
