Old El Paso County Jail Museum Reviews & Ratings
This Historic Jail Museum was very fascinating to see! So much history to learn about and experience. Loved the artifacts as well!
It was fun and educational we went for a ghost hunt @ night. We will go again at DAY.
Not super exciting and quite small, but free and worth a 10 - 15 minute look if in the area.
Fully restored. Great job San Eli
A fun visit to bygone day
