What a great tour. It is so unusual and interesting. Be sure to book on line early as they only let a couple of people in per hour. It was so cool. I had seen it on Ghost Adventures and was very glad I searched it out to visit. Don't miss this!

Wow! I was kind of scared when I went it but later on I saw everything and how well done this jail was and the history behind it. They have some original items and its so interesting to see all this and how it was back in the day! Very nice to come and visit all 4 floors! Yes 4! It is the biggest one from other 2 which the nice lady told me about and I forgot but this is the biggest one by far. Very interesting mechanism to rotate the jail cells around.

Really interesting piece of history across the river from Omaha! So glad we went there on a whim today (they are open on Sundays). Difficult to photograph to convey the interesting design of jail. Well worth the visit
