  • Located in a quaint granite structure which is just at a stone's throw distance from the Union Square and Aberdeen Station. It is a must see. The inside turns up to be surprisingly spacious . The unraveling of Aberdeen's maritime history from its fishing past to the fantastic representation of the workings of its high tech ofshore oil facilities can see a good couple of viewing hours pass by without a notice! Entry to this museum is free . Frankly I wouldn't be interested if it wasn't , but I'd now say that it's worth a see even if it was!

  • Interesting museum showing a lot of the history of Aberdeen. The port of Aberdeen has been an important part of its growth and industrial influence in the UK. Paintings of famous ships and also of more abstract motives. For kids there are also interactive exhibits, which are also fascinating for adults. Definitely worth to see in Aberdeen.

  • Excellent museum that tells the history of Aberdeen through the archaeological findings from the earliest ages well before the romans and vikings, right up to the present age. The artwork and exhibition of artefacts and sound recordings are superb. There are a few interactive screens which didn't work so well for me. But the accurate model of a particular north sea oil rig that stretches up through the height of about four floors of the museum was awesome and a real show-stopper! There is something for all ages here. The staff are very helpful.

  • Amazing museum, absolutely rammed packed full of interesting things for kids and adults to enjoy! I have 5yo and 1yo, both loved it, and us grownups were very happy with the quality and variety of the displays. The cafe is quite nice too! Thoroughly recommend for a family day out

  • This place is a great way to learn about maritime history and how it influenced the area. The oil and gas exhibits and info on piper alpha was really poignant. Of course being a donation museum certainly adds to the appeal. Would recommend a visit if your in the area.
