Long Description:
Opened on 25 August 2005, the museum contains a treasure-trove of items donated by correctional centres and staff from around NSW.

The Department of Corrective Services’ Museum is a living Museum, as it employs elect inmates in a variety of areas such as tour guides, sales assistants, collection management and craft manufacturing.

The inmate who was giving the tour when I visited was very open about his own personal circumstances and his perspective on "the system".
Days and Hours of Operation:
Tues - Fri 12.30 - 3.30 Sat 9.15 - 3.30

1 Vale Street
