“So interesting”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Didn't realise how big the gaol would be - so interesting to read all about it and be able to go into all the facilities there.
Highly recommended to all.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

This has some interesting history, pity there are not guided tours and souvenir shop (this would help with funding). Information well posted around buildings. Could be a prime attraction with tours.

“Basic but interesting”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

We were the only people here, but it was interesting to walk around and read all the information on the walls about the prison's history. Worth a visit if you've got an hour extra to kill.
