Amnesty for Artifacts

Have an item or items related to the Ohio State Reformatory?  What about items or photos that may be related to the movies (Shawshank, Tango and Cash, Air Force One, Harry and Walter Go To New York) filmed here? We would love to add them to our collection!  Just bring the items with you to the Reformatory and present them when you approach the admission desk.  You will receive 2 free tour tickets and big “THANK YOU!”  After filling out the donation form, we will send you a thank you for your generous gift which you can also use for a tax deduction.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Reformatory or Archive Department and we will be happy to help you.

Thank you!

Walk the same halls as history's most infamous prisoners. Immerse yourself into the foundation that formed The Shawshank Redemption. Whether you're hunting for the paranormal or simply looking to tour the beautiful architecture, you can find it here at The Ohio State Reformatory.
