SCOTTISH MARITIME MUSEUM MAKES TOP 10% OF WORLDWIDE ATTRACTIONS ON TRIPADVISOR

People love the Irvine museum and it's a testament that Ayrshire has so much to offer.


The Scottish Maritime Museum has been named a 2020 Travellers’ Choice Winner in Tripadvisor’s annual awards, putting the national maritime heritage collection into the top 10% of worldwide attractions listed on the website.

Each year Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel platform which helps 463 million travellers each month, combs through reviews, ratings and saves from travellers everywhere to ‘award the very best’.


The Scottish Maritime Museum has been named a 2020 Travellers’ Choice Winner for both sites, the former Victorian shipyard building, the Linthouse, on Irvine Harbourside and the Denny Tank on the site of the former William Denny Shipyard in Dumbarton.

David Mann, Director of the Scottish Maritime Museum, says:

“Our focus is always on continuing to develop the Museum, adding to our collection and finding innovative and exciting ways in which to tell the human stories behind our maritime heritage. 

“We are over the moon to become a 2020 Travellers’ Choice Winner because it is a direct reflection of what our visitors think about the quality of their experience and how much they engaged with and enjoyed visiting our museums.”
