Collections Overview
The museum holds the Prison Service's national historical collection, and illustrates the history of imprisonment from the late 18th.C. to the present day. Objects range from those peculiar to prisons themselves (e.g. execution equipment) to the mundane, such as kitchen equipment and agricultural machinery. The collections originated with those assembled by Col. 'Jim' Haywood, a former Assistant Commissioner of Prisons. The origins of the present museum can be traced back to an exhibition of Haywood's collection held at the Officers' Training School, Leyhill, in 1978.
Display Overview
The displays incorporate a mix of cased, static and interactive exhibits arranged in three main groups: Prisons Past, Prisons Present, and Prisons Future.
Star Objects
The last set of gibbet irons used in England. Sampler embroidered from hair Gallows
