The moors were misty( surprise!) so popped in for a couple of hours. It was full of full if information, curios, running videoswritten accounts and the whole history, all presentd in a very informative manner. Lovely to see, and glad I wasn't an inmate, even though I was offered a cell- there were nine available!

For a small museum it it full of wondrous information regarding this iconic prison. The history of this establishment is unbelievable and the staff within the museum were very knowledgeable.

I would definitely recommend driving or walking a few more yards past the prison and paying a visit. Also, some of the hand crafted items for sale are amazing and extremely good value for money.

Drove here today but it was closed. The nearby visitor centre mentions something about building works. This is a great museum so I hope it reopens soon but check before you make a special journey.
