Canon City Prison Museum

Canon City, Colorado

The Prison Museum was one of the first museums to open in Canon City, Colorado. Formerly a prison, the cells are still intact within the museum’s walls. In the old laundry room, there are several cold spots and there is the smell of tobacco. There have been photographs of orbs taken in Cell #19, a cell in which a woman died years ago. Coughing and odd smells have also been known to come from the cell.
