  • The staff were super friendly here - we just stumbled across this museum and they were very informative of what it was about. It's small but it's free and very interesting. Would recommend
  • Excellent historical museum! Not wheelchair or mobility friendly, has several high, winding staircases. Attendants were very knowledgeable and friendly. Viewings are by donation only, very inexpensive outing idea.
  • Brilliant place to take the kids to learn local history
  • A little small and cramped but absolutely loved the history!
  • Great value at free, interesting to learn about old Aberdeen through this prison museum
