Take the time to see this place. We enjoyed the museum very much and it is easy to get around. Lots of interesting history and fun to compare to what we have in the US.
A whirlwind history of prison life from the 18th century on, all inside a former prison. In the first section, you get a sense of the claustrophobic conditions of those times. The English language audio-guide, included with admission, is informative. However, much of the exhibit signage is in Swedish. Understandable, seeing as how we're in Sweden, but you miss out... More
Visited the Museum with my son, we had a good few hours wandering the modern and old jails. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a very informative tour. Well worth the look, interesting and entertaining.
First time there with classmates, the person who guide us was so nice and give us good information about the place and the story behind it. Nice for those who never been in prison museum before so you can learn something new. Right when I get inside I can feel "something", scarry but so informative :)
