Aberdeen Maritime Museum

Aberdeen Maritime Museum houses a unique collection covering shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, fishing and port history. It is also the only place in the UK where you can see displays on the North Sea oil and gas industry.

Aberdeen Maritime Museums mascot is a pirate character called Granite Jack and a large image of Granite Jack greets visitors in the museums reception area. They have quiz sheets for the 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.

To help children complete the quiz they have Granite Jack pictures on display throughout the museum leading them to complete the quiz. At the end of the trail, everyone gets a Granite Jack badge to take home, along with the quiz sheet.
