Get a behind-the-scenes look into Folsom State Prison, the second oldest prison in the state and one of the first to be outfitted with maximum security. Examine the old hemp ropes that were used to hang dozens of condemned prisoners, view memorabilia from the Johnny Cash concerts that made the prison famous, and study the weapons and objects meticulously crafted by fed-up inmates—one of which is an eight-foot motorized Ferris Wheel made from 250,000 toothpicks. Who says you can’t be productive in prison?
