I did the self guided tour. You can wonder through the museum, including the basement. Didn't sense any ghosts though, unfortunately.

The staff is very knowledgeable, giving brief information of the history before you start your self guided tour.

An interesting part of area history. It is a self guided tour with or without an audio headset. The headset allows you to get additional stories about each location, but is extra. We learned a lot about the prison, noted prisoners, and the advanced thinking of 1 man about prison reform.

I have been here twice. I have a bit of obsession with prison, maybe because I can leave. LOL. This one, though small is quite good. I like the life size models in the cells so you can appreciate how small the space was. Inside and outdoor displays. Fun visit.

I love being a tourist in my own state (NJ)! I was hoping to feel a spirit or two, but it didn’t happen. We took the audio tour, which enhanced the tour. Dennis added interesting tidbits about former inmates that came back to visit and about ghost clubs’ experiences there, etc.
