Aberdeen Maritime Museum
Aberdeen Maritime Museum tells the story of the city's long relationship with the sea.
The Maritime Museum will be closed from 28 November 2022 until Spring 2023 to allow us to carry out essential repairs and maintenance.
We look forward to welcoming you back in person, but in the meantime, explore the museum online https://vt.virtualinclusion.com/aberdeenmaritimemuseum/
Admire the unique collection covering shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, fishing and port history.
Aberdeen's excellent collections of maritime paintings and objects are utilised to the full in the museum, with touch screen consoles, computer visual databases, an 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 licensed café 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.
