  • Very interesting. My 11yr old boy found it fascinating. Maps showing you how Aberdeen was. Info on locals who were imprisoned there. Narrow twining staircase. One way up and same way down. A good hour...  more »
  • A former prison in the centre of Aberdeen, this marvellous attraction is a must-see! Free admission, friendly and knowledgeable staff and an excellent wee guide book for £3. A great insight into crime...  more »
  • This is a free museum with a few stories of those who had been incarcerated here. It is quite small and doesn't take long to visit.  more »

  • 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
