The Halden Prison was opened on March 1, 2010, and is touted as the world’s most humane prison.

Inmates are housed in individual cells that put college dorm rooms to shame. All cells include a mini-refrigerator, flat screen television, en suite bathroom, and unbarred windows.

The vertical windows were designed to allow as much sunlight as possible to the cell. Cooking and music classes are offered and there is a jogging trail, and recording studio.

In addition, if feeling at a loose end, inmates can take full advantage of a rock climbing wall, well stocked library, recreation and hobby center and peaceful meditation room.

The prison also invested $1million in a specially painted mural on the wall of the exercise yard by famed Norwegian street artist, Dock.

Halden houses murderers, rapists, and drug dealers but prison guards don’t carry guns and often eat their meals with the inmates.

The prison cost $253 million dollars to build, and took 10 years to complete.
