Customer Reviews:

Stumbled across this amazing museum. I'm so glad I did. It was all very well designed, informative and engaging. I kept going back to re-read narratives. Loved Mr Bronson's paintings and artwork. Some made me giggle. Great sense of humour. Would love to own one of these, from a man who has spent most of his time inside due to the brutality of authorities. Well done for creating this gem.

A decent couple of hours spent looking round. Clearly the owner has a passion for the subject and a biased view of certain criminals and the museum reflects that. Go with an open mind and you might learn something. Its very atmospheric and we got a very warm welcome.

Full of interesting exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee. Dogs allowed.
