Museums in Aberdeen

Beautifully Budget

It’s not difficult to plan a fun filled day, even when the Scottish rain sets in.  This city is brimming with museums and art galleries which can make a great, informative experience.

Key museums include the Maritime Museum which is important in a city which has always had close ties to the sea, the University of Aberdeen Zoology Museum for the animal lovers, the Tolbooth museum which provides a great account of crime and punishment in Aberdeen, and of course not forgetting The Gordon Highlanders Museum – a 5-star graded visitor attraction which tells the story of the Gordon Highlanders over 200 years.

If the whole family is on holiday, you can’t go wrong at The Aberdeen Science Centre which usually appeals to the younger crows and is conveniently located close to the popular Aberdeen Beach promenade

Aberdeen Art Gallery is currently undergoing a major £30m redevelopment and is due to re-open in 2019, however there are numerous independent art galleries in the region, including the Enid Hutt Gallery which is centrally located in Aberdeen at 500 Union Street and is certainly worth stopping by.
