Alcatraz East is a crime museum featuring an in-depth look at American crime history, which includes artifacts from lots of different eras and topics, not just the penitentiary on Alcatraz Island.

The museum has five galleries: History of Crime, Crime Scene Investigation, The Consequence of Crime, Crime Fighting and Pop Culture.

Alcatraz East Crime Museum first had roots in Washington, DC in 2008, but shut down in September 2015 after the landlord terminated the lease. The new museum, named for the prison that inspired the DC museum with a nod to our new home in East Tennessee, opened in December 2016 in a one-of-kind building designed as a combination of Tennessee’s first state prison and guard towers inspired by the Alcatraz lighthouse. The two-story building offers over 25,000 square feet of exhibit space.
