Young Persons Trail

Aberdeen Maritime Museum's new mascots are Dee & Don who greet visitors in the museum's reception area. We have quiz sheets for our younger visitors to fill in as they go round the building, one is suitable for children under 7 years old and the other is for children 8 years old and above. Dee & Don pictures are on display throughout the museum helping children to complete the quiz. At the end of the trail, everyone gets a Dee & Don badge to take home, along with the quiz sheet.
