Fairly interesting but a bit of a tourist trap nonetheless. Very small and overpriced for what it is.  


I agree with the review below. It is not interesting at all, tiny and expensive for what it is.


Avoid. This is a tourist trap of a quite small & overpriced museum. Badly wax puppets & blood effects presenting the Southwark/Clink prison & it's history. Even with the discount voucher - 2 for 1- it doesn't worth it. You can see the whole museum in about 20mins - the only interesting thing is in the end that you get your photo for free (send to you by e-mail) in prison's gaol.
