It was definitely worth the money just be prepared to read a lot... with that being said, it is all very interesting. There’s also the excitement of a real prison being right next door

Oh where do I begin. Very knowledgeable Josh met us at the gate and began our education in criminal history. Friendly staff met us at the top of the stairs and helped us to orientate ourselves to the building. The exhibits where we saw the Colorado escapees and the youngest prisoners really caught my attention. Really the whole exhibit was so interesting. The whipping bench, weapons, and ladders.

About Museum of Colorado Prisons

Located next door to the Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility—an operational prison built in 1871—Museum of Colorado Prisons houses no inmates within its walls. Instead, the former Women's Correctional Facility now contains 30-plus cells, each transformed into exhibits covering more than 140 years of the state's incarceration history. Along with in-depth profiles of notorious prisoners of the likes of Alfred Packer, who was infamously convicted of cannibalism, the museum homes in on aspects of prison life throughout the decades. Displays encompass everything from confiscated contraband to inmate arts and crafts, including many watercolors of contraband that prisoners were feeling wistful about. Besides daily audio of self-guided tours, the museum invites visitors to occasional events every year, such as nighttime ghost-hunting expeditions.
