"Tolbooth Museum"


"Tolbooth Museum", Aberdeen

"Castle Street (i.e. the eastern part of Union Street before it enters the Castlegate square.). Open seasonally July to September Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday 12.30pm-3.30pm. This is Aberdeen's museum of civic history. In Scottish towns and cities a ""tolbooth"" was the main municipal building or Town Hall providing council meeting space as well as a courthouse and jail. Aberdeen's Tolbooth Museum is situated in a 17th-century tolbooth which had housed jail cells in centuries past and played a key role in the city's history including the Jacobite rebellions. The museum has fascinating displays on crime and punishment as well as the history of the city. The entrance is at the Town House (the modern equivalent of the Tolbooth!) just along from the Sheriff Court entrance and next to the bus stop. The museum is closed on Mondays. Admission free."
