Sing Sing Prison Museum is the extraordinary location where the complex and compelling stories of incarceration are shared on the grounds of one of America’s most historic active prisons. A site of self-reflection and learning, the Museum challenges all of us to imagine a more equitable criminal justice system and to take action toward building a more just society.
Our Goals Are To:
- De-sensationalize and humanize the stories of the prison impacted: Become a prominent voice in the national conversation about social and criminal justice.

- Listen to and uplift those living the experience daily: Have a positive impact on the incarcerated, workers, victims, and families.,
- Revitalize Ossining: Stimulate local and regional economic development in the Hudson Valley and the village of Ossining.
