Aberdeen Maritime Museum


03/04/2010 - 20/06/2010

Celebrating the founding of the museums and galleries collections 125 years ago, this exhibition sets the scene on Industrial Aberdeen in 1885.

A busy port city, Aberdeen also had world class industries in Granite, Engineering and the Comb Works to name just a few. Showcasing some of our earliest collections, this exhibition explores the great industries which brought wealth and prosperity to the Granite City in the Victorian era.
