After 5 years, the Cell Block 7 Prison Museum closed permanently on Dec. 29, 2019


Thank you to all of our 35,000+ visitors for five amazing years of programs and tours that shared Jackson’s prison history with the world.

The Ella Sharp Museum will continue to collect prison artifacts, documents, and photographs and to tell Jackson’s prison history through stories, exhibits, and programming.

Cell Block 7 is honored to have worked with the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC), Experience Jackson for marketing support, and all of the many community partners who helped make CB7 a reality.
