About

The owners say:

Explore the Linthouse engine shop, Scotland’s ‘Cathedral of Engineering’, a Victorian Glass-roofed building from 1872.

Build and test your own model boat, or learn to manoeuvre a remote-controlled boat in our indoor boating ponds.

See our collection of floating vessels, including Spartan, Scotland’s last Scottish-built puffer, the harbour tug Garnock, and Carola, a steam yacht built in 1898.

Learn about Scotland’s importance to maritime history, and about the people that built and sailed Scottish ships around the world.

Visit the shipyard worker’s tenement flat, a ‘room and kitchen’ restored to its pre-1920’s appearance.

Discover ship models, photographs and historic objects in the museum’s Boatshop.

Climb aboard the MV Kyles and tour the Captain’s cabin, crew’s quarters and the engine room.

Find the perfect gift, souvenir or book in our well stocked retail area, we have a wide selection of maritime themed goods.
