Cellhouse Audio Tour

Tour the Cellhouse at your own pace with the award-winning audio presentation "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour”. Stop to picture yourself in a dark solitary confinement cell, hear the stories of life inside from real prisoners, and feel the intensity of a prison breakout from correctional officers who lived and worked on the Island.  

No one can tell the Alcatraz tale quite like the men who actually lived it.  Hear both sides of life in the island prison including such famous events as escape attempts, "The Battle of '46", "Food Riots", and "Surviving Solitary Confinement".

The Cellhouse audio tour is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Please note: Audio tour refunds are available for Alcatraz Island Day Tours only.  Please inquire with a supervisor at the entrance to the Cellhouse for refund information.

There are no audio tour refunds available for the Alcatraz Night Tour or the new Behind The Scenes Tour.

Audio tour refunds are not given through the Alcatraz Cruises ticket booth or the central reservations office.
