Today, the prison is one of the best history lessons the State Park system has to offer. The restoration and conversion into a first class museum, gives visitors a unique glimpse into prison life in the late 1800s.
This Park is a must-see if you're in the Laramie area. Admission fee is $5.00. You can run through quickly or spend a couple of hours, as I did, reading about how the prison offset costs through the manufacture and sale of straw brooms. The broom factory is still there and you can even buy a broom made there in the gift store.
