Philadelphia’s massive prison features several dramatic vistas in the prison’s cathedral-like cellblocks. The Acoustiguide audio tour, written by a team of award-winning writers and producers, delivers the sounds of the prison’s rich history, from cell doors slamming to guards issuing orders to the 1961 riot that unfolded into chaos.
