This is a relatively small musuem in the heart of Princetown, easy to find with plenty of parking. It goes into a lot of detail as to the history of the prison - how and why it was built and how the prisoners were and are treated, as of course the Prison is still there. I found it interesting, although I would perhaps have liked a little more detail. Its nevertheless well worth the small investment to visit.

Very interesting to walk around this museum reading about things that have happened at the prison over the years and the names of some of the inmates that have been there and what they got up to. Also to see the many exhibits.
Well worth a visit for £4.

This little museum tells the full history of the prison from the Napoleonic Wars to modern day. Lots of information and well curated. Great value for money. Paul is amazing. His knowledge knows no bounds. Could listen to him for ages. Thank you.

It was really interesting however very wordy, lots of things to read which i find difficult especially as some of it was high level so if you are taking children or a girlfriend who is super short and not a reader (me) you may need to verbally condense.
I didnt also get why dogs were allowed in, im a dog lover and have 1 myself but it was annoying as the place is pretty small.
The man on the front desk was nice, knowledgeable and funny.
Worth going as interesting especially down stairs.

For £4 entrance fee, this is a bargain
The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and the museum took us a good hour to get around
Great to see a bit more about the most famous prison in the UK
Lots of interesting information and artefacts (contraband items confiscated)

Unplanned side-trip into Princetown, and we decided to stop here for a visit. Very interesting museum. I had no idea of the history behind Dartmoor prison, only knowing about it's "hard" reputation. Some of the displays were jaw-dropping, particularly the prison contraband and weapons. A wealth of fascinating material but lots of reading required. I liked that they velcro'd items so they could be taken down to read more easily (not required for me yet, but that day approaches fast....)!

It's a very small venue, very 'no-frills' in keeping with it's prison origin. But definitely worth a visit to learn more about the history of the place, and an interesting section on life in the last 18m of pandemic lockdown too.

Great day out
Fantastic pleasent caring staff who are knowledgeable too
Manager (Paul) is extremely helpful and understanding when it comes to visitors with disabilities. There are things set up for sight impaired or hearing impaired visitors
The museum offers a vast amount of information for all ages to understand
The only downfall is that there is only a small carpark which holds about 10-12 cars
Definitely worth a visit

Visited while on holiday in the area. As other reviewers have said, there is plenty of reading material which gives a history of the place, and is very interesting. It was a much smaller museum than I expected, and this did make social distancing a bit difficult at times. You only really need an hour for a visit.

Interesting little place to visit however was very small and compact and not much room to distance from other people. There are two toilets very hidden away which are both down some quite steep stairs so not ideal if you struggle with stairs etc. Toilets were in a okay state but not ideal in these times. Was interesting to walk around however didn’t take very long to see all the things.
