Queensland Prisons Museum

The Queensland Prisons Museum is located in the Caboolture Historical Village, and is curated by members of the Boggo Road Gaol Historical Society.

Housed inside the former Police Station and featuring two historic timber lock-up cells, this museum focusses on the history of the prison system in Queensland. It features some of the unique artefacts collected by the BRGHS, and a great crowd favourite is when BRGHS volunteers share their experience by giving entertaining talks and demonstrations inside the museum.
