Scottish Maritime Museum, Irvine



The Scottish Maritime Museum, here in Irvine really did take me by surprise and complete with its surrounding Maritime buildings, just adds to the experience. With a huge collection and regular visiting exhibitions, you will entertained no end and if you are very lucky, you may even get to see people walking around in traditional costume that will instantly transport you back to a time where Maritime was everything to the British Isles. Situated within a huge glass-roofed Victorian Linthouse, this building was originally the engine shop of Alexander Stephen & Sons, which was a huge shipyard in Govan, Glasgow before being relocated to Irvine in 1991. I think it is also worth mentioning that this museum is part of two maritime museums, the other being located in Dumbarton, where the ships were originally designed and tested. As you walk around the museum here in Irvine, you’ll be absolutely amazed at how much there is to see and do.
