The Ohio State Reformatory is open 11am-4pm daily.
$25 per person for self-guided tours, $35 per person for guided tours.
The tour route is adjusted Labor Day-November 17th due to the Blood Prison Haunted House setup. A $6 discount will be offered on self-guided tickets during this time. Guided tours will still be 90-minutes long and are still full-price, but the tour visits different areas than normal. There is no access to solitary confinement, the ground floor of the cell blocks, the showers, or the bullpen. If you want full access to the tour route, please plan to attend outside of this window.
