The self- guided audio tour was good, but the second time opted to have a guide-led tour, which is much better for a group of people who need to keep the same pace. I really was amazed with the creepy feeling that comes over you in certain corners of this prison. I noticed it more with the self guided tour than the guided tour. A tour includes the solitary punishment cells, Al Capone’s Cell, and Death Row. The architecture is amazing, 30 foot high walls dating from the mid 1800's. The prison hasn't been in use since 1970 and many areas are crumbling. Wear r sturdy shoes like sneakers and don't wear sandals because some of the walking is on flaking uneven concrete and small pebbles will get in your sandals. Seriously creepy and fascinating even on a warm summer day.
