Scottish Maritime Museum, Irvine
We are the Scottish Maritime Museum, two family friendly attractions telling the story of the nation’s maritime past, present and future. We are home to amazing ships, industrial machinery, and nautical inspired artwork.
Discover something new at our museum at Irvine Harbourside. Inside the Linthouse you can see our permanent collection under the spectacular glass roof which gives the building its nickname the ‘Cathedral of Engineering’.
Book a guided tour through our award winning Boatbuilding school & workshop and see how we train apprentices to repair & build wooden boats, from racing skiff’s to row boats. The workshops are used to repair wooden vessels from our own collection and also to build racing skiff’s or rowing boats & repair vessels under contract.
Guided tours of the workshops will take place at 10:30, 11:30, 13:30 & 14:30.
Each tour will last approximately 30 – 40 Minutes.
The workshop area is a short walk away from the main Museum building. Spaces are limited to 15 on each tour.
