The Ohio State Reformatory offers only abbreviated tours from September 6th-November 15th due to the Blood Prison Haunted House setup. During this time, there will be no access to solitary confinement, the ground level of the cell blocks, or the showers. If you want to see these locations, please plan your visit for either before September 6th or after November 15th. All guided tours will still be 90 minutes long and will become a combination of Hollywood Meets History and Beyond the Bars locations.
