A New Way to Look at Crime & Punishment
Sing Sing Correctional Facility is an active, maximum-security prison where the theories and realities of criminal punishment and rehabilitation have played out for almost 200 years. It’s a place with diverse stories from multiple perspectives.
Today considered the most progressive facility in the New York State prison system, creating a museum and center for criminal justice inside an active prison is a natural choice for the place that helped established American prison systems in 1825.
The Sing Sing Prison Museum will be the history of this world-famous institution through exhibits, artifacts, and experiences. The museum aims to take center stage in the urgent national conversation about social justice and incarceration. In illuminating these issues and in telling these stories, Sing Sing Prison Museum will use these tools to understand national conversations about social justice and incarceration.
The museum's future facility will occupy a location both inside and outside prison grounds, illustrating that we are all responsible for bridging divides in our knowledge of prison systems. Our goal is to deliver new ways of understanding for a fairer future.
