Aberdeen Marine Museum , Aberdeen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Superb collection of maritime memorabilia covering the history of Aberdeen and the North Sea. Some great interactive exhibits and worth it alone to see the scale model of the oil rig. There is a decent cafe on the lower level offering hot food and drinks, soup was superb on a cold aberdeen day. Friendly and informed staff were superb.

  • Very interesting museum. Loved the area about North Sea Drilling, diving suits etc. The literature about the Alpha Rig fire was very informative. .. all in all a great place to visit. . and it's free..... Also a smashing little cafe..

  • Considering that it is free of charge you should absolutely pay this place a visit. It is a great museum. It offers information about Aberdeen harbour, the North Sea and oil and gas platforms (place is supported by the oil industry, which is visible but also leads so some interesting pieces to see). Nice view over the harbour. Good coffee in the Café. Very nice staff.

  • Friendly helpful staff and a lot of content for a small free museum overlooking the harbour. Oil industry information and videos in particular were good.

  • I've been there a number of times with visiting family members and friends. Good place for one to learn about oil and gas industry. Very informative and fun. Downstairs is a cafeteria (haven't visited myself) for someone who needs some energy to get going.
