  • Awesome place ! You can spend 10 or 30 minutes, it's up to you and that's what I like. There are creepy stuff but that's what I wanted to see there.
  • Great fun, free. Stone spiral staircases burrow through this fascinating collection of crime and punishment related artefacts from the distant Aberdonian past.
  • Lovely little museum showing the history of the jail. It's free and takes about 30 minutes. You need to be willing to walk up and down lots a spiral staircases. You have been warned! ☺
  • Interesting tales of crime, incarceration and escape in this small, free museum. An amusing half-hour trip in your imagination back in time!
  • Small museum with lots of narrow stone steps, interesting and unusual
