NO ESCAPE

Some tried, but all failed. A total of 36 prisoners tried to escape 14 times but had no luck. 23 inmates were caught alive while the rest met their peril. 6 were shot and killed and the others drowned in the cold unforgiving waters.

THE BAD GUYS

Al Capone, George "Machine-Gun" Kelly, Alvin Karpis - Alcatraz was home to the most notorious bank robbers, murderers, and gangsters. It was designed to hold prisoners who continuously caused trouble at other federal prisons.

TOUR FEATURES
