Grampian Transport Museum

Toggle location map

Located in the vibrant village of Alford, just 45 minutes from Aberdeen, the museum boasts an impressive range of transport exhibits, from travelling chariots of the 1800s, to some of the fastest cars ever made. Every season the museum refreshes around one-third of its exhibits – this year's exhibition includes 'The Guy Martin Collection' and 'It's Electric', which gives an in-depth look at the past, present and future of electric vehicles. A few old favourites remain, including our MACK Snowplough, Billy Connolly's Boom Lowrider motortrike and one of our Curator's favourites, the ex-Grampian Police Rover SD1 Vitesse.

Our Tea Room serves an array of hot drinks, light lunches and snacks.

 

At the present time we have in place comprehensive Covid-19 safety measures to keep our visitors as safe as possible. A clear signage system explains how it all works and the measures are being very well received by visitors. To prevent overcrowding we have moved to online bookings easily accessed through our website.

Sit down and relax with a cup of tea or coffee in the cosy café.

With a selection of tasty cakes, trays bakes and freshly prepared sandwiches, the 'Travellers Rest' is the ideal place for a quick refresh during your visit.
