Kay smiles at us with satisfaction. She is happy to lead this institution. She thinks this is better than the idleness of being a pensioner, which she has been entitled to since 2003. It’s a job for a person like you who has spent most of his life working in the Colorado correctional system. Dungeons easily become a hobby. So who would be surprised that the Museum – housed in a former women’s prison (the women’s Correctional Facility built in 1935) – is perfectly run. Since its opening in 1988, it has received 225,000 visitors. I do not know why everyone is so fascinated by death, says Kay Ellison. Everyone wants to see the gas chamber. That interests everyone. Just like the model of the couch for lethal injection.
