Does the OP know what the rules are at this museum, as to whether visitors can enter the cell?
I didn't say someone was in the cell, I said it was just light shining on the floor, like through holes in the ceiling or wall.

Reminds me of Southern Minnesota's ghost child in the window. Had many a chilling ride past that as a young person.

Light is reflecting off something - why would all the cell be dark and the "face" by white. There is also something to the left of the "face" object that looks connected and does NOT have a physical shape at all - maybe a tarp or something.
We would need to see a picture of the call in the daylight to see what's there - a bucket, glass, plastic tarp, etc. The photographic exposure of light and shadow can create strange visual images sometimes that look nothing like what they actually are.

I agree. There is something of similar brightness that is at the end of the cell too. Looks like light shining up from a lower, well-lit floor of the building. Like bright daylight.

If it is a figure, I don't see a child. I agree with the person that said a doll. There is a 'Kewpie doll' quality to the shape of what we would say is the child's nose and chin.

Interestingly enough - the Old Jail was built in 1914 and the German Bisque early Kewpie Dolls were made between 1912 and 1914. Some as large as 20 inches.

It would be unlikely for someone to leave a German Bisque Kewpie doll in a cell, even if the cell was locked. They are worth several thousand dollars today. However, a composition Kewpie doll to mimic the doll "of the day" is a possibility.
