The interactive displays in the main museum. There is so much history and artifacts to see. There's one cell that's open and full of bats if you dare enter. The prison is also believed to be haunted.

While in Laramie, four of us took a short drive to this historic prison site. We were the only ones there aside from 2 volunteers and the lady in the gift shop, which was great considering this is the year of Covid. The volunteer at the front gate gave us some interesting background on the site. We then entered to begin our self-guided tour. Wow, the interior was amazing and knowing the facts on prison life here made us wanting to learn even more. There were even 19 women incarcerated here within the time the prison was functioning as such. We then moved onto the Broom Factory, learning how that was built at the prison as a viable business where many of the prisoners worked. Butch Cassidy is the most famous outlaw to have been incarcerated here. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a look-see.

The COVID-19 pandemic has this park closed at the moment. We walked around the area and visited the old cemetery with no names on the grave sites. Despite the pandemic they should open up the prison and allow only a certain number of people inside at a time.
