Welcome to Aberdeen Maritime Museum

Aberdeen Maritime Museum

Situated on historic Shiprow with spectacular views of the busy harbour, the Aberdeen Maritime Museum proudly exhibits Aberdeen's strong maritime history, and its close connection to the sea. The city's significance in the North Sea oil industry is explored, as well as the importance of fishing, shipbuilding and sailing in the development of the area. Displays at the museum include a 28-foot (8.5m) high model of the Murchison oil production platform, collections of photographs and plans from major Aberdeen shipbuilders and naval paintings. There is also a café and gift shop at the museum.
