“This building is haunted. They are here.”

Take a tour through the history of Colorado’s prison systems to Discover Colorado and get a look at the last gas chamber used for executions at the Museum of Colorado Prisons in Cañon City – though it’s not always for the faint of heart!

People who work at the museum all have their own stories to tell about ghosts and paranormal activity at the museum, which shares a wall and towers with the Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility.

Maybe you’ll have your own to tell after a visit! But aside from ghost stories, the museum also contains an exhaustive collection of the stories of Colorado’s prisoners and prison system through the years sure to interest visitors – even if you get a few goosebumps.
