Cell Block 7 is not just a replica or a likeness; it's a real prison, where thousands of convicts have done hard time. You'll inhabit the same cells, walk the same corridors, and pass by the same gun towers as some of the most hardened criminals in Michigan's history. Countless convicts risked their lives to escape. They climbed over walls, tunneled under walls; one even made off in a helicopter - right from this prison. While you’re spending time at Cell Block 7, you won’t have to try to imagine prison life; you’ll feel it, experience it; and it’s as close to prison as you’ll ever want to get.
Cell Block 7 Prison Museum is independently operated by the Ella Sharp Museum. Hours vary based on season, check their website for more information.
