Just a shame I'm not able to give more stars. Surely the best 6 euros I've ever spent. The guide was very friendly and gave us an amazing tour of the prison and loads and extremely interesting stories. Tour lasts about 2 hours.
A very interesting museum. Unfortunately we missed the tour by 15 minutes, so we could only see the museum. Luckily the museum itself was really interesting, even more so because the building is so original. It's probably not worth getting the tram all the way out there unless you're going on the tour as well, but the free museum is still good.
