What people are saying:

This place is a prison for female prisoners, built by the British. This is a painful, dark history during the colonial period. But everyone should understand. There is a historical story narration called HER HISTORY, and some actors, highly recommended.

    It's ok but was hyped up too much

    You pay $8 or you can get a tour. There are 3 yards with some plaques and some info. We heard part of a tour and that sounded informative but not our cup of tea. Call us uncultured, but we prefer to s...
