Discover the Maritime Museum

Maritime Museum

This is Aberdeen Maritime Museum. Discover the stories behind shipbuilding, fishing and the North Sea oil industry.  Learn about life on an oil rig. Aberdeen Maritime Museum has spectacular views across the busy harbour.

The museum extends across three very different buildings. The entrance leads into a modern glass and steel area containing the North Sea oil and gas story. In the former Trinity Church building you will find exhibitions on shipbuilding, fishing and the history of Aberdeen harbour as well as the museum cafĂ©. The Provost Ross House area, dating from 1593, tells the story of tea clipper ships, the North Boats along with a display of many fine maritime paintings.
