The Prison Museum contains the world’s largest prison collection. Walking through the old state penitentiary’s historic buildings, the museum portrays the 153 years of prison life as seen by both inmates and prison personnel. The guided tour covers all four floors of The Prison Museum and is an in-depth, personalized journey through the penitentiary’s historic buildings.
The TTFF conference takes places in Horsens, at the former State Prison. Over the last two decades, Horsens has experienced a remarkable transformation, from a national reputation as a town of crime with a frightening prison to a town known for huge concerts featuring for instance Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen. The prison has turned into a cultural institution. Ole Wolf from the Cultural Department at the Municipality of Horsens tells the story.
