This place is a remarkable piece of American history. The audio guide narrated by ex-cons and wardens alike is simply mesmerizing. Even the teens of our family who at first thought visiting a prison as a bit weird idea and a waste of valuable shopping time, walked through the whole 45 minutes tour with great respect and enthusiasm. The night tour included access to the prison hospital, which is still intact and in the state it was left when the facility was shut down. The San Francisco skyline is at its best viewed from the Alcatraz island at sundown. Totally recommended!
