What an amazing compound and history. The museum house is small, with a helpful film and very well informed host in the gift shop. We had no idea what it was like, and the stories of the original secluded cells were powerful. Ingenuity was pretty cool, too. And had another murder just last week - two men in a cell,... 更多
Good staff.Although the museum is small there are a lot of exhibits and info and the Johnny Cash connection make it even more interesting to my age group.
This museum is right at the entrance of the Folsom Prison. You would have no idea that such a cool museum exists if you are not in the know. It is like stepping back 100 years when you first arrive. The prison guards at the gate are always pretty funny and quite knowledgeable too. Go towards the end of the... 更多
This is a very interesting part of Folsom. Many famous prisoners have been to Folsom prison and of course it was made famous by Johnny Cash. Visit the museum for a small fee.

Right near the front gates to Folsom Prison sits the Museum and it's packed with photo's guns, shiv's and prison history. If your in the Folsom area this is a must see, sort of quirky but interesting too.
Enjoyed the display on Johnny Cash. Its a very pretty drive in - we saw wild turkeys and deer along the road way. The prison is quite impressive with the grey granite blocks.
This is really interesting - what got me was the types of weapons that the inmates make and it is out of paper and other materials! There is a section on Johnny Cash and the history of the prison - with old newspaper clippings and pictures!
This is not just a line from Johnny Cash---it's still an operating prison. The museum has a variety of things in it that have come from the prison since it opened in 1880. It's worth the $2 fee. The video shows you areas of the prison not accessible to us.
