It is completely pram friendly but there is such a lot of information to read it was difficult to concentrate while trying to stop my small child screaming/breaking things etc. We were very sorry not to be able to take more time in the museum, lots of interesting information.

On a wet and boring day we decided to go to Dartmoor prison Museum.
It was sensibly priced at £3pp and despite its small appearance it had loads to
see and was very informative.
You had the chance to purchase things made in the prison too. We opted for the
bags of kindling for £1.50 each. Bargain.
If your passing call in. Dont however try and call in the Highway Man on the way
home. Closed, not even a clue as to its opening time, if at all.

All you could see was snow but it was still open. Managed to quell my girlfiend's 'geekisms' and visit this great museum. Even if you have previously had no interest in prisions - it is captivating!

We popped in to check this place out as a way to get out of teh rain and we were very pleased that we did. They had so much stuff to see and such a wild history to hear. Have already reccommended this place to friends and family as a must see when in the Dartmoor area.
