We recently visited the Wyoming Frontier Prison and were not expecting anything really exciting. However, we took the hour long tour and enjoyed every minute. It was an excellent learning experience and you could feel yourself being transported back to frontier times when this prison held many of the "outlaws" from this time period.
While on the tour, you will witness the conditions that prisoners were held in and learn what it was like to be a prisoner in times when things were quite different. You'll tour the initial detention area, cellblocks, galley and other grisly things like the actual gallows and gas chambers. You'll learn several "interesting" facts some of which are actually humorous.
The tour guide was excellent and while he kept the tour moving, was always open to questions.
As an added bonus, the Wyoming Police Museum is also in the prison and you can see what it's like to be a police officer in Wyoming over the years.
It's weird to say this, but the prison is a must see if you are in the area.
