Enter Inveraray Jail and step back in time. Visit the beautifully restored Courtroom and hear trials in progress. See furnished cells and experience prison sounds and smells. Ask the prisoner how to pick Oakum. Turn the heavy handle of an original "Crank Machine"; take 40 winks in a hammock or listen to the Matron's tales of day to day prison life as she keeps an eye on the nursing mothers, barefoot thieves, lunatics and children in her care.There are many exhibitions including Torture, Death and Damnation, and In Prison Today. Superb gift shop.
April to October, daily 9.30am - 6.00pm. November to March, daily 10.00am - 5.00pm.
