I really liked learning about the history of not only Aberdeen but the surrounding area; especially seeing the city in its hay day. The people at the museum were very informative and extremely friendly and helpful

We are open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00-5:00 just like it says here; UNLESS there is a private event going on, where there are too many tables and chairs out for the public to negotiate safely. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Great for Nirvana fans. Several items on display related to Kurt Cobain. We enjoyed the other displays within the museum as well. Admission was free, although you can make a donation if you wish. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly.
