Decided to try a quick visit as we have always been interested in local sites when traveling. The museum runs self guided as well as audio tours. It takes about an hour but you get a very good presentation of jail life 150 years ago. The highlight of the visit is a tour through the Governor's House attached. The house... 更多
This restored prison is an important part of history, it shows that someone was thinking about prison life and how it could be improved, and how to improve the safety of the guards.

What a fun historic adventure! I have been to the Gaol before as a child and later as a youth, but my husband had never been.

We enjoyed touring the jail. They give you machines to carry and listen to blurbs in each of the areas. Interesting stories about some of the inmates. Well worth the price. Enjoyed seeing the Victorian home that goes with it.

Nonetheless, a very good sight, especially in the warm summer months when the doors to the jail can be left open and you can see... 更多
The gaol (jail) was so very interesting. I learned a lot about how things where back in the 1800-1900s. Fascinated to learn that the person running the jail lived with his family on the second floor of the jail for many years.
Wow the history behind the gaol was truly amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this facility. I would tell everyone to visit it. We spent an hour and a half touring inside.

Was introduced to this museum during 1st trip to in-laws. It's fantastic - the construction of the prison is hexagonal with a spiral staircase in the middle, making it almost disorienting but in a fun way. Great exhibits and profiles of some of the inmates. Anyone interested in history would enjoy it.
