Brought the kids to this place for a visit on a wet Sunday. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The place is full of many historical exhibits and stories. The kids found them so interesting. The watch house experience was fun. The staff acted as a sergeant making us role play as a criminals to be "processed" through all the inmate "check-in" procedures. We were made sitting in a cell and lights switched off for a brief moment. We felt like going back the time tunnel to feel these dark history in such realistic manner. What a pleasant surprise. Really a good visit.

Absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed, excellent value for money and extremely informative. Staff were so knowledgeable and friendly. We went through the gaol and did the watch house experience, had our ten year old with us and it was a huge hit. Allow two hours all up for watch house and gaol, plenty to read and learn about. Big thumbs up.

獄警帶領参觀的行程蠻有趣的,雖然大部份英文聽不懂,看著其他民眾一起做也是OK的。牢房裡面居然還有行刑台(絞刑),然後旁邊小房間裡有一個名單是敘述共處死了多少人,我看完後覺得頭暈,因為這是真真實實在你旁邊發生的事,被處死的人種各國籍都有,包含中國,想像這些事情就覺得反胃,但還是值得推薦一遊,感受一下歷史。

A friend and I visited Melbourne Gaol, being able to walk around here and get a feel for the size of the cells and history of the prisoners is quite eerie! The death masks are so well detailed/preserved and in some of them you can see individual hairs on the face. Loved the availability of the history and interaction of this attraction. We then went next door to the police station which was fully functional at one point. We were taken in “as prisoners” and stood in the cell block. The “sergeant” was fantastic in his role play, was quite frightening and gave me sweaty palms. Divided men and woman and then into groups where you were locked in a cell with the lights out. You were then taken to the exercise yard for men and then a smaller one for women; during this the sergeant was very informative; fantastic how all the markings on the wall are original from the cell mates when the police station was open. Definitely an experience that makes me never want to be arrested!! Fantastic fun for all, not to be missed! This is a very well worth visit and if you are a english National Trust member free!! The tour is in two parts next door to each other, the Watch house where the guide plays a very stern sergeant who charges you and you are separated in to male and female and placed in a cell with lights out! Very sobering when you are told this was still used till 1994. The other part is the old goal and this is where the likes of Ned Kelly and other felons were locked up and hanged . Well worth the visit even if you have to pay.

Great setup with tours with guides that know their stuff. Otherwise you can walk around and just experience the atmosphere. Ned Kelly artifacts there are amazing but its the stories about every day people that tell you how much society has changed. The place is confronting but thoroughly absorbing.
