The Eastern State Penitentiary is an amazing place to visit. There is so much history there and so much to see. When visiting Philadelphia, we actually visited Eastern State Penitentiary twice. The first day we went happened to be the first day of their season, so admission was free, while the second time we went, we utilized our CityPass ticket. While on the visit, we had the opportunity to visit Al Capone’s jail cell, which was the most luxurious of them all, to say the least. There always seems to be more to see when you visit the Eastern State Penitentiary.
