The Maritime Museum in Aberdeen is centrally located near the Harbour, in the historic Shiprow, which wanders down from Union Street to the harbour.

The Museum tells the story about Aberdeen’s long relationship with the Sea. An award-winning museum, it houses a collection of well presented exhibits covering all aspects of Maritime history and it is the only place in Scotland where you can see displays on the North Sea oil industry. 

There is a wide range of maritime themes ranging from the early fishing boats that operated from Aberdeen harbour through to the modern age, with several exhibits about the North Sea Oil industry. A prominent feature of the museum  is a large scale model of an oil-platform that is suspended in mid air so that you can view it from different floor levels within the museum.

The museum is a free attraction that will kill an hour on a wet day. Our only criticism would be that there are not a lot of interactive displays to keep younger children entertained.
