Burlington County Prison operated from 1811 to 1965 and was the oldest continuously-used prison in the United States at the time it closed. With over 150 years of escapes, executions, and even murders, its story is one of mayhem, mystery – and maybe ghosts! The prison opened as a museum in 1966 and is still open to the public today. Are you brave enough to take a tour?
The museum is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from noon until 4 p.m. for self-guided tours. Audio tours can be purchased for $3 extra. Don’t miss out on special events like seances, movie nights, and ghost hunts.
