The Prison Museum Association is pleased to present lesson plans for public and private schoolteachers, homeschoolers and anyone else up for a challenge. Much of the lessons can be completed by using data which can be found on our website. The best use of the plans, however, is as part of a field trip tour of the Museum. Guided tours for student groups can be arranged by emailing the Prison Musem Association at or calling the museum at 609-265-5476.

The Historic Burlington County Prison is a National Historic Landmark which is a must-see for those interested in history, law, architecture, penology, sociology and any number of other subjects. It is easily accessible from Exit 5 of the NJ Turnpike and Interstate 295 and there is ample parking.

The Prison Museum Association gratefully acknowledges the Westampton Township Public School District, in particular, Superintendent Virginia Grossman and Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction, Jennifer Murray. Ms Murray prepared the plans which are presented on this website. A graduate of The College of New Jersey with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Drexel University, Ms Murray has worked in education for 11 years.
