About the Project
The Sing Sing Prison Museum is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors, with three interim staff members.
We are working on opening a preview center in the Powerhouse in late 2020, and are slated to open up the full museum in 2025 to make the 250th construction date of the 1825 Cellblock.
Historic Hudson River Towns is working with the New York State Department of Corrections, The Town and Village of Ossining, and multiple stakeholders to develop
Exhibitions and programs will be housed in the historic 1936 Powerhouse, a state-owned building located outside the present security wall of Sing Sing Correctional Facility (SSCF) that will continue to exist as a maximum-security correctional facility. Access to the 1825 Cellblock inside the prison is planned, but if access is suspended the museum will provide a full, interpretive experience within the Powerhouse.
