The tiny museum of People’s Story lies in the old prison of Old Tolbooth, one of the oldest buildings on the Royal Mile. The museum shows the tough life and work of common people of Edinburgh in various ages.

The exhibition includes a prison cell, a shoemaker and cooper’s workshop, and numerous reconstructions of ordinary life in the private houses of Edinburgh.
