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".
