Folsom Prison Museum is a tiny and random museum attached to the current Folsom Prison in California. Parking and walking in isn’t for the faint of heart since you drive down Prison road and park in the same place as all of the visitors meeting with their prisoner loved ones. You even have to walk through the Prison Gate in order to get to the front door of the museum. From there things go up! You are greeted with a warm welcome to an obscure and interesting micro museum.
The museum boasts a number of interesting newspaper articles, photos, prison art, Johhny Cash memorabilia, prison contraband, and other historical artifacts of note even if some are somewhat macaub. It is an interesting stop one which won’t take you much time and might be coupled nicely with a walk or ride on the nearby lovely Johnny Cash Trail.
