What does it mean to be not guilty by reason of insanity? How has society treated the these people in the past? The exhibit is currently on tour, but the educational program is still available.
Covid-19: In order to ensure distance between our visitors our guided tours and educational programs will limit the number of participants and showcase objects in one room instead of moving around the museum. This does not effect our prices or the availability of our programs.
Length: 45-60 min
The Prison of Madness focuses on what happens when someone who commits a crime might be not guilty by reason of insanity. It includes unique photographs from the Criminal Asylum. The students learn about the history of criminal psychiatry and how people with mental health issues were treated in the past.
The program concludes with a tour of the building and a visit to one of the cells.
