This was a very nostalgic trip for us as my Grandfather was a shipwright and has two ships and tools on show in the Museum. It is very well laid out easily accessible and user friendly.
The tea room was nice and did ask if we were on any benefits as there is a discount scheme.

Thank Jacqui I

We went to tjis at my husband's insistence: he loves boats, I don't! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of the exhibits and actually found some quite interesting. They also had a computer set up to search for Abrdeen built ships. We used this and I was amazed tht it was esy to use, found what we were searching for, and gave us relevant and interesting information.
