I joked to everyone back home to keep bail money handy. Boy were they surprised when I told them I really DID go to jail! I took the self guided tour via brochure and read every wall and display. It really opened my eyes to some of the tragic history of this country, as well as the rebel south. You can even shut yourself into one of the cells, which is sobering. Bring layers as it is a bit chilly. I watched the movie at the end- I think it was 15 minutes long and found it worth it. I got quite a bit choked up by the end of it. It was worth the trek from the Bells of Shandon.
