The museum stands on the original site of the Clink Prison which belonged to the 11th century. The prison was one of the oldest ones in the country. The prison housed plenty of sinners of that time. The museum samples the same features of the prison. It educates the new age about the historic time and punishment levied on prisoners which included debtors, harlots, traitors, thieves, drunkards and more. The prison although not known to many, is indeed interesting and educative.

The Clink Prison Museum, London Reviews - Write a Review
I had a blast here! I read through a lot of reviews that made me skeptical on visiting, but I'm glad I did. There is a lot of reading to do if you want to learn anything, but it's pretty neat history. I went closer to the end of the day and wish I had a little bit more time to spend. The staff was very friendly and didn't seem to be bothered that we were there until after they had closed.
This museum is far underrated and is truly a hidden gem in London. If you come up to London by train you do qualify for the 2-for-1 entry however it is already at a reasonable price. Unlike the dungeon this is a far more educational Museum about how prisons worked in history. The museum only takes you about an hour to get through but it is completely packed with information.
So the London Dungeon is too expensive......try the clink instead. Great price with all the horrors of London to see in a small space. Not too scary depending on your disposition but great to take kids. Recommend to make a day of it you visit the Golden Hinde around the corner too
Not a bad museum if you enjoy as bit of history. I personally find the £7.50 entry fee justifiable where students or concessions pay £5.50 Tucked away under a burger bar on clink street before the tunnel so I hadn't noticed it before. Interactive displays were great!
Some neat exhibits. Not for kids, as a good chunk of the exhibit is on torture devices. At the end you get a picture taken behind bars and get a free digitial copy. Several things are touchable or interactive which is nice. Took about an hour to work my way through, seeing everything, but that was slower than most. Wasn't a ton to see. Felt like a tourist trap.
