The Missouri State Penitentiary Museum is now open to the public. The Museum is located on the second floor of the Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau offices at 100 E. High St.
The idea for the Museum was conceived several years ago to give Jefferson City visitors an opportunity to learn more about the history of the Missouri State Penitentiary.
The Museum includes a replica cell with prison bars, a bunk and a toilet to demonstrate what living conditions were like at the Missouri State Penitentiary. Also, the Museum has a number of large displays featuring photographs of the Missouri State Penitentiary through time. Several display cases are filled with artifacts and memorabilia on loan to the Museum.
There is a separate entrance to the Museum off of Jefferson St. through which visitors can access the Museum by either stairs or elevator. Groups of 10 or more can contact the Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau to make an appointment.
