Unlocking McNeil’s Past: The Prison, The Place, The People

Now through 5/26/2019 | Washington State History Museum

Museums South

This exhibition presents the larger history of McNeil Island as a place, and the prison that opened there 143 years ago. The prison operated far longer than the better-known Alcatraz island prison. When the state’s correctional center on McNeil Island closed in 2011, it was the last prison in the nation only accessible by air or water.
