What travelers say:

The Prison Museum is a huge building complex here. The museum was remodeled in a huge prison. Fortunately, many unique buildings can be seen in the museum. The prison is very compact. [Fun] Understand the real prison [Value for money] Many of them are free

    Curious

    Interesting to see how a prison functions. I don't envy the guys being kept there. There is even a genuine hang.
