Accessible Aberdeen Maritime Museum

The newer part of the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, which includes the museum shop and the Maritime Cafe, is wonderfully wheelchair accessible.

Some parts of the older section of the building, which dates from 1593 (before wheelchair accessibility was even a thing), can only be accessed via steps though.

But overall, this is most-definitely a “must see” attraction for wheelchair using visitors to Aberdeen.

Admission to the Aberdeen Maritime Museum is Free!
