With a unique collection that boasts an impressive number of displays, from shipbuilding and the history of the port to the more modern North Sea oil and gas industry, there’s a little something for everyone.
Set up within Provost Ross’ House in Shiprow (the perfect place), Aberdeen and opened in 1984, the museum boasts an impressive number of awards – including the Scottish Museum of the Year award and it maintains a Four Star Museum status to this day.
Perfectly suitable for history lovers of all ages, the Museum includes modern and interactive exhibits; touch screen consoles and visual computer databases alongside the more classic displays.
