The guide was great, I think his name was Frank. Really made you understand what happened there. Hard to believe it was used until 1951. Not a pleasant place to end up.

Loved the gorgeous old building...it certainly was home to horrible conditions when it was being used as a jail. Fascinating history and great guide. We did this as part of a trolley bus tour. Our guide was entertaining and great fun.

This was part of a "Ghost" tour so we visited after dark. Our guide was as animated as one could ever ask for and he even managed to make us jump once or twice. Anybody who's never been in jail shouldn't pass up the opportunity...More

Let me clarify. There are 2 parts- the outside part of the tour which of course is accessible, but then you go inside and as far as I could tell it wasn't.
