On the 1.25-mile guided tour, wander through the former correctional center's barbed-wire gates and imposing 19th-century fortress-style walls.
While inside, experience firsthand the prison's sally ports, cellblocks, chapel, cafeteria, yard, and solitary confinement.
Finally, take a seat in the darkened gymnasium to hear about Hollywood's century-long relationship with Old Joliet Prison, including cinema's role in Illinois prison reform.
Note: When they arrive, guests must sign to two general waivers of liability: one with the Joliet Area Historical Museum and one with Chicago Movie Tours. Guardians must sign waivers for children under the age of 18.
