There is a plaque to the left of the door in Shiprow at the Maritime Museum for Provost Ross House.
They provide a leaflet giving some information and you will find some rooms with low doors etc from the old house. At level 1 there is artworks in the picture gallery in Provost Ross old house.
Interesting rooms but filled with maritime information.
A nice cafe here and you can park in NCP Shiprow, collect a ticket at reception which will reduce the cost from £7.50 for two hours to £3
Pity the council have not incorporated more of the old Provost's House from 1590.

We can well appreciate the frustration of the previous reviewer as this historic building has been subsumed into the Maritime Museum. However, there is a storyboard with the history of what now forms the old part of the museum with early photographs. Rooms, staircases etc. can still be seen although museum exhibits have now spread into these areas. The external door, with the National Trust for Scotland Plaque is still in situ.

I've visited this place on a few occasions and loved it and it's history. Today's visit was the worst I've every experienced.
When approaching the historic building you left in a state of confusion as to the entrance of the this stunning building, top, middle and lower entrances are locked. You've wondering what's going on. Looking into the ground window you can see people working and photocopiers cables and the like. Feeling puzzled we all made our way down to the Maritime Museum and made our way in and was informed that entrance to the Provost Ross's building is via here the Maritime Museum! .

We were welcomed and given a floor plan of the whole area and being only interested in the history of the old building I tried in vain to find anything to do with the house. What an absolute shame the the Maritime Museum have filled what floor space was left to paintings of ships and a story about death in Victorian times.

Looks like the National Trust for Scotland and given up on the house and left it to the Museum.

We are all poorer for this lose, as its only 1 of 2 places that are left in Aberdeen that are really early and saved from demolition in the 1950s

Nice piece of architecture and well worth a visit. Enjoyed a light lunch there too. The food was somewhat limited.
