“Surprisingly impressive”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

So, it took us a little bit of time finding this. I think we were looking at the pink house across the street every time we passed it. You receive a nice self-guided tour brochure when you pay the minimal entry fee. What was most surprising about this place how long it was used. It is very well preserved and very easy to navigate. It is, however, not wheelchair accessible. People who struggle with stairs should be cautious when visiting the prison. Like many older buildings, there are a lot of steps to enter and steps to the basement and second floor. There is a nice little gift shop, too. Well worth an hour or so.

“Went to the Haunted Prison, was dissapointed.”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

This place has all the makings of a super stellar haunted attraction but it had no thought behind it, was expensive and lacked imagination... I'm sure it's interesting during the rest of the year though for the regular prison tours...

“Very Interesting time in prison”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

A nice little side-trip in Mt. Holly, this prison museum has nice exhibits and explanatory signs. Lots of history in this building.
