Scottish Maritime Museum Irvine
The Scottish Maritime Museum is a four-star tourist attraction based in the west of Scotland, with sites in Irvine and Dumbarton.
About Scottish Maritime Museum Irvine
At these two sites, the Museum holds an important nationally recognised collection, including a variety of historic ships, artefacts, shipbuilding machinery and fascinating personal items.
The Linthouse, originally built in 1872 to the design of John Frederick Spencer, a naval architect who had worked with Brunel. It was extended and altered more than once during the following 100 years of its working life and finally, when threatened with demolition for industrial redevelopment, it was dismantled and rebuilt in its current Irvine site in the latter part of the 1980s.
Within the Linthouse you will find historic boats and other artefacts along with art and sculpture related to Scottish maritime history. The Museum, founded on the historic and continuing importance of the sea to Scotland, opens up the past to everyone.
Awarded 4**** by the Scottish Tourist Board.
