"The Rock" Alcatraz Coming to Yuma Territorial Prison

"The Rock" Alcatraz Coming to Yuma Territorial Prison


YUMA, AZ - Yuma is known for its feared Territorial Prison and this winter visitors will be able to get a look at two famous prisons with a extended stop over from an exhibit about" The Rock." For a three-month stretch, you will be able to get a look at two of the nation's most notorious prisons in one location. The Yuma Visitors Bureau announces a special traveling exhibit on Alcatraz (think The Rock, Escape from Alcatraz and more) at the Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park from Jan. 12 through April 14.

The traveling exhibit is meant to bring Alcatraz to people who otherwise could never visit, said Charles Flynn, executive director of the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area, which operates both of Yuma's state parks.

The "Life on the Rock" exhibit was created by Alcatraz Cruises at the request of the National Park Service and will be displayed at locations around the country including Ellis Island and Liberty State Park.
