Wyoming Territorial Prison

Wyoming Territorial Prison

Built in 1872 and restored in 1989, the prison is a highlight of Montana's frontier past. Stops along the tour of the 190-acre facility include: furnished cells, the prisoners' dining area, guard's quarters, infirmary, women's quarters, laundry room, warden's office, and various exhibit galleries. The exhibits rotate frequently.

We hope you enjoy our work.
