About the Museum:

The only (restored) village lock-up in Manitoba. Built in 1912, the Gaol Museum celebrated its centenary in 2012. On show are two cells and the constable's office. Visitors can don a prisoner's uniform and have their picture taken behind bars. The only place in Canada where you can have fun in prison.

Le Musée geôle célèbre ses 106 ans cette année. À voir: deux cellules et le bureau du constable. Les visiteurs peuvent mettre un uniforme de prisonnier et se faire photographier. "Le seul lieu au Canada où vous pouvez vous amuser en prison."
