Eastern State Penitentiary

Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through "confinement in solitude with labor," Eastern State Penitentiary quickly became one of the most expensive and most copied buildings in the young United States.

One look at the brick towers peering over the walls & you know this place means business. Ghostly business. Even if you don't bump into a specter, there's plenty of creepy stuff to snap pictures of.

Eastern State Penitentiary, a grim, 172-year-old former state prison, was once home to famous inmates Al Capone and Willie Sutton. Pained former prisoners are said to haunt Eastern State’s dark halls

Inmates of the former prison attempted to dig their way to freedom and visitors can see the primitively-crafted tunnel. Was their plan a success? As seen on Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum.

Take the audio tour narrated by Steve Buscemi, but don't forget to explore on your own for Capone's cell, the story of the breakout, and stories of the women who were there. So awesome.

The former jail, complete with Gothic towers, turrets and Al Capone's cushy cell, is scary in a good way.
