The Gordon Highlanders Museum is a 5-star VisitScotland Tourist Attraction based in the west end of Aberdeen. It is committed to preserving and sharing the legacy of the world-famous Gordon Highlanders Regiment for future generations to enjoy, providing a wide range of unique experiences for all visitors, young and old.

Tours can be in person by one of the knowledgeable Museum Guides or an audio tour is offered in 9 different languages and also an easy to listen to family friendly guide. There is a mini-figure hunt and free comics available for children too!

Within the grounds there is full size WW1 replica Trench exhibition which gives visitors the opportunity to wander through and explore what it might have been like for the soldiers serving in the trenches of World War 1.

The Museum has an extremely popular cafe, gift shop, excellent conference and events space as well as a beautiful south facing walled Victorian garden to sit out in. The building is a grade 2 listed and was the former home of Sir George Reid the eminent North East Artist and President of the Royal Scottish Academy of Art.

The Museum is an independent, self-financed museum, governed by a charitable trust.

The “Cognito at the Museum” Café has a light open feel and is a must for morning coffees and cakes, light lunches and afternoon treats with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating.
