Over this past weekend, my family and I went to Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Alcatraz East is a museum that has history behind some of the worst criminals in history, all the way from Salem Witch Trials to more current crimes. The museum is filled with real artifacts from the past such as old torture devices, murderers cars, handwritten documents, and fingerprints. Though it is costly, it’s definitely worth the see. It’s $24.95 for adults ages 13-60 and $14.95 for kids. They have crimes such as theft, hacking, murders, kidnappings, terrorism, and burglary. Alcatraz has interactive rooms where you have the ability to try to hack a safe, try to escape prison, and try some of the hardest knots known from kidnappings. My favorite part of the museum was the criminals cars they have. They had the cars of Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger, OJ Simpson, and Ted Bundy. If you ever need an adventure and you’re into the crime world, i highly recommend Alcatraz East!
