I don't believe in ghosts, but even without the sense of being haunted, I found this place wonderfully intriguing. It all started with gargoyle statues outside of the Prison, that looked rather creepy. There's an audio walking tour that I only did for the first 10-15 minutes, because I was on a time crunch, although the parts that I did listen to, were quite interesting and informative. It's amazing to think that the prison was still open for awhile in the second half of the 20th century. You can view hundreds and hundreds of cells, there are many informative signs describing the historical significance of various cells and items, and included the notable inmates who stayed there. Most spectacular, was Al Capone's cell, but I won't say anything more about that, as you should see it for yourself! Also, the guard towers outside, and the medical/dental facilities were cool. Make sure to stop by here for...I'd say about two solid hours!
