This little excursion was worth it. Located in a very small town with not much to do. Price was cheap, like $5.00. It was a self guided tour.Does't tell you much about the history so read up before you go. Has lots of stairs to reach it so beware if stairs are a challenge for you. Overall a nice hour was spent experiencing this old prison.

Worth 45 minutes of your time. Interesting layout of the old prison, but the museum displays were a little scattered and random (they have the remains of an old satellite that crashed nearby). Good view of town and they have cats.

A very cool and unique museum with lots of peeks into Mulege's history. A must see when visiting this little town.

The little road is very narrow that climbs through the town and up to the prison. There is a lady who serves as a guide with very limited English, donation of 20 pesos. Interesting artifacts and information.

Visiting the town museum always helps you understand where you are. Everything is in Spanish though so unless you can read it or speak with the docent you won't know what you're looking at.

The woman "guide" was extremely friendly and genuinely happy to show us the museum and we had a fun time communicating with our limited Spanish and her limited English. But many of the signs are in both Spanish and English. The museum is housed in the old prison which makes it unique and interesting. A local artist's work is displayed and his work is intriguing.

This museum is the former prison. It's an easy walk from the town, up some steps. The lady guide when we visited spoke a few words of English, but with a bit of miming and using your imagination, you could get the gist of what happened here.

Look out for the old diving equipment, the boat made from a single tree trunk, the old mining implements, the caballeros stirrups and leather chaps, the piece of space rocket junk which fell on a local ranch, and best of all, there are fine examples of rock art so you don't need to do a lengthy tour out into the desert.

It costs 20 pesos per person to visit and is well worth it. There's a nice view over the town too.

this was so interesting. we were surprised with the liberties of the prisoners and the "honesty" of the prisoners. You can still feel their energy.
