Why go to Alcatraz?

Once home to some of America's most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. The presence of infamous inmates like Al "Scarface" Capone, and the "Birdman" Robert Stroud helped to establish the island's notoriety. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world's most legendary prisons.

In addition there are wealth of other stories to be learned on the island:

  • Alcatraz is now home to rare flowers and plants, marine wildlife, and thousands of roosting and nesting sea birds.
  • Civil War-era buildings dotting the island give insight into the 19th century when the island served as both a harbor defense fort and a military prison.
  • You can also see visible reminders of the American Indian Occupation that started in 1969 after the prison closed, highlighting an important milestone in the American Indian rights movement.
