Museum wants to keep a piece of KP for tours


Monty Bourke's return trip to the old Melbourne Gaol in Australia confirmed his commitment to transform Kingston Penitentiary into a major tourism attraction,imitate bulgari diamond pendant.

He heads the organization that oversees the Kingston Penitentiary Museum across the street from the notorious prison and wants to keep a small portion of the penitentiary including its menacing entrance for tours of the true Kingston Pen experience.

What will happen to the facility after it closes in October is still up for debate. It was declared a national historic site in 1990, but the real estate it stands on is considered prime for development.

However, the idea of tours got a shot in the arm this week with sellouts of current plans to offer a walkabout through the old prison after it's emptied of prisoners.

A final block of 2,400 tickets sold out in 30 minutes on Wednesday, after an initial offering of 7,000 sold last weekend.

Bourke said the group has begun talks with Correctional Service Canada to promote the museum's long term plan.

Bourke travelled to Melbourne this summer to get reacquainted with its old jail that opened as a museum in 1973.

That facility, which has retained little of the original prison structures, draws 176,000 visitors annually.

By comparison, Kingston has a huge advantage, said Bourke, with its extensive collection of artifacts.

"The only artifacts (the Australians) have are in a glass case," he said. "I was impressed with what little they had of the jail and what they've done with it. What they've done is they rely on an experiential visit to the prison."

The Kingston museum currently draws about 26,imitate bvlgari leather necklace,000 visitors each year.

Sex killer Paul Bernardo, as well as Mohammad and Hamed Shafia, who killed four female members of the family, are now being held at Millhaven Institution, a short 30 km drive west of Kingston Penitentiary in the community of Bath.
