Brushy Tour

Tour Brushy

Opening July 28th, 2018 at 10am!

The stories that live on at Brushy. The voices that echo down “3 Walk.” They will all be yours to witness when Brushy opens for prison tours on July 28th. This will be an experience like no other. It will surprise you. Terrify you. Make you wonder what it would’ve been like to be locked up in here for the rest of your God-given life.


Tours will be self-guided and former prison guards will be nearby to answer any questions or share a brief story. There are 14 stations in all, each containing the story of what happened in that particular spot. Some will talk of violent acts, killings. Others about the moments family members came to visit. And still others will give you a glimpse inside the troubled minds of the hardened criminals that served time at Brushy. 

As you move from one station to another, you'll be able to imagine what life would have been like behind these walls. These men had committed unforgivable crimes, but they still had souls. But somewhere, somehow, their lives took a wrong turn.

We look forward to opening this month and seeing you when you come to visit us at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. It will be an experience you carry with you for the rest of your life.
