Facility:West Virginia State Penitentiary
Description:Groups will walk down the long, eerie hallway and see a 5 x 7 cell that was once occupied by an inmate. The museum houses a variety of contraband on display, a copy of the letter from Charles Manson requesting transfer to the former WV Penitentiary, pictures of executed inmates, and last but definitely not least, "OLD SPARKY." The electric chair that was made by an inmate to execute inmates. It will be an experience that you will talk about all the way home!
