4 star rating: Recommended September 2016

Though the jail is very hot in the summertime, the tour guides are knowledgeable and make the experience a lot of fun.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

Lasted maybe 20 minutes of actual inside time. Not much to see.

The tour wasn't as creepy as I anticipated. Our tour guide seemed to be super scripted with no personality. Maybe we just didn't luck out with the tour guide we had.
