About the Workhouse Prison Museum

The Workhouse Prison Museum opened to the public in 2009 and is entirely supported by private contributions. It is currently located in Building W-9 at the Workhouse Arts Center. It was created to present a synopsis of some of the significant events that took place at the District of Columbia’s Correction Complex at Lorton from its opening in 1910 until the last prisoner left in 2001.
It is anticipated that a new, permanent museum will open in the summer of 2017. The premiere exhibit will honor the courageous suffragists who were imprisoned at the Workhouse in 1917, a century ago.
