Built in 1833, the jail operated until 2002 when the Ministry of Correctional Services closed the facility in favour of newer, larger facilities in major cities. The cell blocks, common areas, exercise yard and visitation area have been maintained as they were when they were populated by inmates sentenced to jail time.
Step right into a cell to experience life behind bars… at least for a few minutes. There are stories of prison life from the point of view of the guards as well as the inmates. You’ll also learn about escapes, and they have some ghost stories to share. We are located in the downtown, across from the waterfront park Museum.
