Fodor's Review

The city was governed from this 17th-century building, which was also the burgh court and jail, for 200 years. Now a museum of crime and punishment, highly entertaining tour guides take you round its cells and dungeons and bring life and death to the various instruments of torture–-including the "Maiden," a decapitating machine–-making it a must-see for older kids.
