The ‘correctional service’ is what Canadian bureaucrats call the nation’s jail system, and this museum is a good way to enter a prison system without stealing a car. The museum, across from the actual penitentiary, has a fascinating collection of weapons and tools confiscated from inmates during attempted escapes.
