The Old Melbourne Gaol is one of Melbourne's oldest surviving buildings and a great place to explore this April school holidays.

The Old Melbourne Gaol was built in the mid-1800s, and over the years was home to many dangerous criminals as well as petty offenders, the homeless and the mentally ill.

Today you can visit the Old Melbourne Gaol to find out was life was like for the men and women who lived and died here all those years ago.

A range of tours are available including tours of the Gaol itself, Ghost Tours and the City Watch House Experience where you learn what it is like to be arrested.

Older children might enjoy the nightly Ghost Tours that run on various nights of the week between 8.30 and 9.30pm. Stories abound of an unexplainable presence. Over many years, these stories come from visitors and staff alike. None have been proved. All are compelling. Join this night tour at the Old Melbourne Gaol — if you dare! The Night Tour is no recommended for children under 12yrs.
