Activity Overview

If you're looking for a fascinating and educational trip in and around Indianapolis, you should consider heading along to the Rotary Jail Museum and Tannenbaum Cultural Center. Whether you live in Indianapolis or are just visiting, it's certainly worth heading for an hour along the I-74 to get to Crawfordsville to visit this attraction.

Rotary jails were a common architectural style employed towards the end of the 19th century across the American Midwest. The jails are of a special design that allows only one cell to be accessed at a single time. Of these rotary jails, there are only 8 of them to feature on the National Register of Historic Places and the one in Crawfordsville, Indiana, is the only one that still operates. Of these 8 jails, only 4 still stand, so if you'll be missing out if you don't make the time to visit!

The rotary jail now serves as a museum and also includes the Tannenbaum Cultural Center where visitors can learn more about the culture of the state of Indiana.
