Sunday, November 18, 2018 from 12:30-5:00 pm
Unlock the Past...and Open Minds
A New Way to Look at Crime & Punishment
Sing Sing Correctional Facility is a working 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 many stories to tell from many sides. Housed just outside the prison walls, the new Sing Sing Prison Museum will unlock the history of this world-famous institution through exhibits, artifacts and experiences. At the same time, the museum aims to take center stage in the urgent national conversation about social justice and incarceration. In illuminating these issues, in telling these stories, Sing Sing Prison Museum will tell us much about ourselves.
2017 Year End Summary
The Museum is not open yet, but we are working hard to make it a reality.
