The Updated Bethlem (Bedlam) Hospital. In the 1800s and early 1900s, many insane asylums  (as well as prisons and orphanages) were treated as tourist attractions. This practice had started long ago, when visitors to Bedlam in London paid a penny to see the lunatics there. They were allowed to bring in sticks to poke the inmates with, to stir them up.
