"This booklet is issued for the information and guidance of inmates of the U.S. Penitentiary, Alcatraz, California. It outlines the Institution's routines and explains what is expected of you in the matter of conduct and work. You are expected to learn and obey the rules and to perform your assigned work to the best of your ability".

Make history come alive with an Alcatraz Institution Rules & Regulations Handbook.

When inmates arrived at U.S. Penitentiary Alcatraz (1934-1963), they were escorted to the cellhouse and handed a copy of the island's Institution Rules & Regulations. Written by Warden Paul J. Madigan in 1956, the handbook served as a guide for inmates trying to successfully navigate their way through long sentences at the infamous prison.

Today, Alcatraz's Institution Rules & Regulations is available to the public as a replica product, produced by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and based on an original artifact in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area Museum Collection. In our replica handbook, made in the USA and printed on recycled paper, you can discover the truth behind the myths about life on "the Rock": learn about privileges awarded for good behavior and punishments for infractions; read about the heavily-scripted, monotonous routine of daily life; dive into details about personal belongings and contraband. Experience history for yourself firsthand.
