A new Museum for the tourist What a fun place to take the family for a picnic and day out. See how the other half lived. A tri[p down memory lane for film buffs and those interested in criminal history.

The museum layout, she said, would allow visitors to navigate around the re-creation of the death chamber if they do not want to see it.

Seems to me that anyone who is ghoulish enough to visit the prison should be forced to view the death chamber. And this isn't a judgement, really--I'm ghoulish enough. It just seems, I dunno, wimpy to go view all the cool-o parts of the prison without having to face the grim reality.

I don't yet know if this is good or bad thing: "What is missing is the electric chair, which is on loan to the Newseum in Arlington, Va. "
