Open House Event at the Historic Burlington County Prison Museum-Mount Holly

Posted on

Don’t forget our OPEN HOUSE this Saturday, December 9. The Burlington County Prison Museum will be open for free from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will be your last chance to see the museum until the end of January or early February. (It will be closed until then for some interior repairs and renovations.) New Jersey Paranormal will be on site for a meet and greet between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Shannon, the palm reader, and Edward, the Bone and Rune Reader, will read the first 15 people who reserve, at a cost of $15. Readings will occur between 1 and 4 p.m; reservations will be taken at noon and are expected to sell out immediately.

The Museum will be open for free, although donations will be gratefully accepted. Personal tours will not be given, but those who wish to take the audio tour may do so for $3. The escape game will be available as well ($10).

Our nifty little gift shop will be open – a great chance for you to get some unique Christmas gifts. We have great hoodies and tee shirts with the prison logo, and fun stocking stuffers, like shot glasses, key rings and booklets about some of our notorious inmates. One of the booklets is about Sheriff King, pictured second from right, who was murdered by an inmate in 1920. John and Chris of New Jersey Paranormal will have their table in the basement a few feet from where Sheriff King fell.
