Visiting with the family?

There are always fun quizzes and trails for younger visitors to enjoy inside the museum. Outside, the front lawn - complete with distinctive red phone box and Birkhall Steam Engine - is a great place to enjoy a picnic.  Bring a blanket or your own folding chairs.

For the first time, thanks to funding from the MUSEUMS SUMMERTIME PROGRAMME, we are able to offer the popular Junior Driving School, a great ‘learning through play’ experience, free of charge to 4 to 8 year old children in family groups.

We believe that your four-legged friend(s) should be as much a part of your day out as possible, therefore you are more than welcome to bring your dog to the museum, but be prepared, our staff WILL make a fuss of them!   

Freshwater bowls are placed outside each day and your dog can even join you as you walk around the museum, all we ask is that they remain well behaved and on their lead at all times.

We love dog's so much we even named one of our exhibits after them, the 'ROVER' SD1 Vitesse or was that the other way round!

Gift Aid

As a registered self-financing charity, the Grampian Transport Museum can claim back the tax on your entry fee as Gift Aid. All you need to do when buying your admission ticket is to fill out a short Gift Aid declaration.

This small additional payment can make a massive difference to this museum. Your extra money will go towards conserving and expanding our collection. With your help, we can ensure that Aberdeenshire has a museum of travel and transport that the community is genuinely proud of.
