The museum, located at the Correctional Training Institute, displays uniforms, photographs and artifacts that chronicle the history of the Indiana Department of Correction.
Among the collection of documents, artifacts and memorabilia are displays on two of the better known guests of the state’s correctional facilities – John Dillinger and Charles Manson. There is also a tribute to “fallen heroes,” correction officers who were killed in the line of duty. Also featured on display is the former electric chair.
