My grandparents lived 4 blocks from there, and my dad drove me past there every Sunday in the '50s. He told me about Willie Sutton and the 1945 escape, told me about Capone being there. I always wondered what was behind those walls. This is a great tour. The prison was a landmark of its time, and influenced penal philosophy worldwide. The tour price includes a very detailed audio guide resource narrated by Steve Busceme. If you're a photographer, bring a tripod.
