The museum is done very well. Downtown Philadelphia is extremely dirty Friday- Monday. The number of homeless on the streets and in the parks is so sad!. Philadelphia's mayor needs to step up and clean up the streets of Philadelphia. The museum is clean and interactive and a wonderful experience.

Unique place to visit with a vert special atmosphere as a stabilized ruin. There is a lot to explore beyond the building which is fascinating for itself. Exhibits on current prison system are very interesting and well made.
