This bluestone building, the city's first jail, is now a museum that has three tiers of cells with catwalks around the upper levels and is rumored to be haunted. Its most famous inmate was the notorious bushranger Ned Kelly, who was hanged here in 1880. The Hangman's night tours (reservations essential) are a popular, if macabre, facet of Melbourne nightlife. Museum entry now includes "being arrested" next door at the City Watchhouse, where guides walk visitors through
the experience of being incarcerated. It is run by the Victorian branch of the National Trust.
