Owner description: Aberdeen has long prospered off of sea-based industries, from the boom of the city's fishing industry in the early 20th century to its oil industry today; this museum explores the historic developments behind the city's maritime industries.

One of the better maritime museums I have been to, with a real local focus, multi-media presentations, hands-on stuff for the kids, a 3-D movie of life aboard an offshore rig in the north sea...and it's all free!!!!

I think this is a very good value for money museum with plenty to do for the kids.
Such a nice building and very well maintained, the education you get i feel is valuable I had no idea so much was involved with fishing,

Well worth a visit. Lots of interactive areas and videos plus a huge range of areas which will interest all members of the family - oil industry, history, fishing etc. The coffee shop also provides good value refreshment. It is exceptional and free!

Thoroughly enjoyed. Very varied. Exhibits on Piper Alpha disaster. Underwater equipment, model of oil platform, information on whale fishing. Very interesting, not overwhelming, defo recommend, beautiful building and, of course, free so will help with budget.
