Wow, what an amazing little gem of a place. Staff are so helpful and certainly know their stuff. Definitely worth a visit to take a step back in time.

If you are in stonehaven be sure to check out this little museum. The place is absolutely amazing, full of beautiful and interesting items. Staff take up work with care and talent.

There is a gift shop in the museum. There you can find ordinary souvenirs like magnets and postcards, and more unusual and beautiful ones. I would highly recommend. Absolutely MUST HAVE in Stonehaven !!!☺️

A small museum but the exhibits are interesting and the staff are super friendly. Came to chat with us and kindly gave our two kids a free gift. Brilliant to see local history and art by the local schools.

I remember visiting the museum as a child and was looking forward to taking my own children to see it during our mid week stay in Stonehaven. Unfortunately, on arrival we found it to be closed. We noted that winter opening is at weekends only but you would have thought that with it being half term they would have had some midweek opening. We were not the only family to be disappointed as we saw another family trying the door as we walked past a second time.

This is one of Aberdeen’s oldest buildings, and is home to Aberdeen’s 17th century jail. Free entry, loads of information, nice staff and enjoyable. The Scold’s Gag or Branks which was a corporal punishment for gossipers is interesting!

We stopped here on walk around the harbour. Plaque on Wall gives history of the Tolbooth going back hundreds of years. Started as store in 1600 for Dunnottar Castle.
When Stonehaven became County Town it was used as Sheriff Court and Prison.
Only opens Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to around 3
Well worth a visit in Stonehaven.

It is such a an interesting museum to visit and take a trip down memory lane.
There is so much to see and read about, from the 60’s Dansette record player playing LP’s of Scottish band music to local folk lore and photos of the fishing industry, including videos of local festivals. It was a sheer joy to visit, the volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable and made you feel welcome. There was even a children’s quiz, with lucky dip prizes.
