True crime stories

Book a tour!

A Heritage building erected in 1842, its metre-thick granite stone walls still stand strong, with existing barred windows, cell doors and historical artefacts on display. Step back in time to the days of bread and water diets, learn about some of our more famous prisoners, and see how the jail itself ties into the beginnings of forensic science!

Science East is now offering guided tours through our entire science centre, which resides in the building of the old York County Jail (Gaol). Book your Jail Tour today and experience the true stories and urban legends that came along with this building before it became a Science Centre!
