Al Capone's Cell

In 1929, famous gangster Alphonse "Scarface" Capone spent eight months of his life in this cell. The Philadelphia Daily Ledger reported that Capone was enjoying many luxuries during his stay at Eastern. Reportedly, his cell was furnished with large oriental rugs on the floor, oil paintings on the walls, and a cabinet radio. The cell has been restored to its appearance during Capone’s stay and can be viewed during public hours.
