Grampian Transport Museum
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 "Kings' Cars", which includes the first car owned by the royal family! Another highlight is '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.
