Business connections: Aberdeen Maritime Museum receives funding from Mae...

Wednesday, 16 February 2011

Other areas of the Museum have also benefitted from funds raised through connections with business - the Energy Exploration Galleries are being renewed after Oil & Gas UK members raised the minimum £360,000 required for the project.
