Museum Of Colorado Prisons

201 North 1st Street
Canon City, CO 81212

719 269-3015

Cañon City, in southern Colorado, is the home of the Museum of Colorado Prisons, a showcase of the atmosphere and exhibits of days, staff and inmates gone by.

A visit to the the Royal Gorge Region isn't complete without stopping and "doing" time in this historical cell house that was the original Women's Correctional Facility constructed in 1935.

The Museum's mission is to be a regional resource center that preserves and presents the history and evolution of the Colorado prison system.
