The Robertson Museum and Aquarium at FSC Millport

FSC Millport (formerly University Marine Biological Station) houses a small museum and aquarium named in honour of David Robertson ‘The Cumbrae Naturalist’.

The museum exhibits illustrate the local marine habitats, features of the marine environment and the history of both the Marine Station and the Field Studies Council. The aquarium features inhabitants of the Firth of Clyde, a purely native marine aquarium. Get up close and personal with an array of marine creatures in the touch tanks or find out more about the diverse history of the Isle of Cumbrae, with dedicated staff on hand to bring them to life. There is something for all the family with new interactive displays and constantly changing exhibits.

This year we are excited to offer events run from the aquarium and museum, for more information please visit our website or come and see us in person..
