It could be an original idea to put a museum in a former prison. but it has also been a very formative one. I would really recommend to take the whole tour. Be careful to book it in advance!

Dear visitor, I am very sorry for your disappointment. We are also making audio guides in English too. Unfortunately we are running volunteer management fees and are forced to do things at a time. I apologize for the problem. Best regards
