This was a real eye opener! Showed a lot of cruel things that were done to the prisoners. Guide was very knowledgeable but didn’t wait till whole group were there before he started to explain things.

It's good that they show how the prisoners were treated. Man is inhuman! It's free of charge to enter the museum.

Interesting visit in a former US prison. Not recommended to bring kids without proper supervision - scenes are extremely brutal and graphic.

An amazing historical site with striking recreations of the prisons cruelty to its captives. The described happenings and detail the tortures that prisoners had to endure is humbling and heartbreaking. Fee was by donation.

It might be better to use a wheelchair because the prison is quite big and there are stairs that lead into each cabin.
