The Maritime Museum – Museums

Beautifully Budget


The Maritime Museum  is important in a city which has always had such close ties to the sea

Its not difficult to see why this museum is often ranked as the number one Aberdeen museum on the peer review website ‘TripAdvisor’.

The Aberdeen maritime history is fascinating, this city is synonymous with the sea – both now and historically. You’ll learn all about the significance of the harbour historically as a port for fishing, whaling, shipbuilding and of course to the modern-day oil and gas industry which is central to Aberdeen’s bustling economy.

The museum caters to all ages with its many interactive displays, and even includes a scale model of an oil platform. The building itself incorporates Provost Ross’s House, which being built in 1593 is the second oldest dwelling house in the city. If you still need persuaded, they welcome donations as the museum is free to visit and there is also a nice café for a cup of coffee and a wee piece of cake.
