Title: Oil tanker museum.
Post by: MattyBoy on February 07, 2020, 10:37:12 am
Hi Forum,

Does anyone know if there's a cargo vessel/oil tanker as a museum exhibit anywhere within the UK?

Have googled this but came up with nothing.

I know of the Liberty ship in Piraeus but as you know she's no oil tanker.


Regards,

SS Shieldhall might be worth a look?

Thanks for the question and the answer - I didn't know about this museum ship.

Looks indeed well worth a visit!

Best regards,

Michael.

Not an oil tanker, but the SS Robin might be worth a look?

The ROBIN, now berthed in Royal Victoria Dock, east London, is not currently open for general public visits, though some open days are expected to be announced for 2020.

Thanks Chas, Daniel, David, Michael. This might be worth looking into this year if I get to leave the house that is.

I'm sure there was/is an ex-odfjell chemical vessel saved as a museum. I've looked for mattyboy but I can't find it anywhere. Instead of the familiar orange colour she is now a sky blue. I'm sure there are pictures on this site. Does it jog anyone's memory?

Cheers,

John

em777, I think this is what you are looking for but now scrapped.

That's her Ian! Thank you, it was driving me crazy. Didn't realise she'd been scrapped. What a shame.

Sorry for the false alarm.

Cheers,

John
