I went there with my parents one summer. It wasn't spooky or scary, but it was creepy, becuase a lot of the prison is falling down just from age. It was interesting to learn about the construction of the place, and why it was built the way it was, as well as the people who were jailed there. The rooms were very tiny, so if you're claustrophobic, you might not enjoy the tour. And, you get to wear sexy hard hats!
