As part of Project Gateway's striving for sustainability and self-sufficiency, the Issachar Trust was created in 2004, to raise funds which are then used to support community projects. One of the ways we do this is through Tourism. School parties, local people and overseas visitors are amongst the many people who visit The Old Prison to discover more about its history.
One of the olest buildings within The Old Prison complex has been declared a National Monument. With National Lottery funding, during this year we have been developing the National Monument as a 'state of the art' Museum. We would like to thank the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund for their assistance in funding this project.
Building renovations have been completed on the 1862 building which has made it more accessible for tourists and those interested in spending time in the Museum. Artefacts have been placed in various cells and touch screen computers and other interactive technology has been installed.
