The property and the “curation” of the prison were terrific. The tour guide was at his limit of his knowledge and answered many questions with “I don’t know”. Although the guild did ask if others had questions, because of his tone (which was not encouraging curiosity and also had a tinge of “shouldn’t you know this?” snark), the visitors stopped asking questions by the halfway point in the cafeteria.
