Really good. Had a Sunday lunch in the restaurant, it was lovely. Lots of info about jail and lots of short videos showing people in the jail and their stories. Cafe on the way out for a well earned cuppa.
Superb information at all points around the venue. Well set out with exhibits, open cells, some gruesome data. The grill was excellent for those wanting a good lunch/dinner. Throughly recommend.
Very interesting part of social history with many interactive features
Great spot. Restaurant top notch too. Highly recommend
