A Tour Of This Haunted Prison In Montana Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

Halloween and its eerie attractions are proof that we all like to be a little scared. But for some, zombies in costumes or shadowy figures who jump out of corn mazes aren’t enough. To experience a real life haunting this Halloween (or anytime), all you have to do is take a tour of the Old Montana Prison Museum in Deer Lodge. You might not see anything spooky, but you just might experience something you’ll never forget.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Touring the Old Prison Museum is fascinating, but it’s not for the faint of heart. For a slightly tamer experience, try exploring one of Montana’s ghost towns, like Bannack State Park.
