The Old Gaol is the landmark building in Buckingham town centre.
Restored extensively by the Buckingham Heritage Trust, it contains a fascinating Museum reflecting the building's history through an audio visual display, aspects of Buckingham's past, and Buckinghamshire's military history.
The year 2000 saw the construction of a spectacular high-tech glass roof, spanning the original prisoners' exercise yard to create a new light-filled area for special exhibits and the new educational resource centre. Included is a 'Cell Shop' for obtaining souvenirs & mementoes, and it is also home to the Buckingham Tourist Information Centre.
Regular themed exhibitions are also held at the Museum throughout the year.
