Not the fumiest but a place to see. Easy to access and good explanations. If you have time do the watch house experience.
Perfect for a group of friends

This was very interesting. A great display of Melbourne history. The watchtower experience was so well done! Our sergeant was great fun and made the experience still light hearted in amongst the gravity of what we were touring. Well worth it! Would recommend for sure!

A very tasteful experience. Worth taking the tour as the Guide was very informative. The exhibits well presented, and the trip to the watch tower was fun.

We took the guided tour and this was very enlightening. How the inmates survived in those conditions amazes me.
