  • Aberdeen Maritime Museum is on the Shiprow and tells the story of this city’s dependance on the sea.

    This is a great day out and the kids will love it for the highly interactive exhibitions on shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, the port and fishing. This is an award winning museum and the only place in the UK where you can see displays on the North Sea oil and gas industry. Aberdeen Maritime Museum offers visitors a spectacular viewpoint over the busy harbour.

    The museum was expanded to create five times the original exhibition space in the 16th century Provost Ross’s House.

    Aberdeen’s excellent collections of maritime paintings and objects are utilised to the full in the new museum, with touch screen consoles, computer visual databases, education room and hands-on exhibits all adding a new dimension for visitors and bringing the drama of the North Sea industries such as offshore oil, fishing and shipping, to life.

    The complex is open six days a week with a busy programme of special exhibitions and events throughout the year. The licensed Leading Lights Café – an attraction in itself – offers fine food in splendid surroundings and a first class shop sells a wide range or souvenirs, gifts, crafts, books and music with a distinctly nautical flavour.

    Facilities include:

    • Education Room
    • Café
    • Shop
    • Toilet
    • Disabled facilities
    • Tours
