We are now closed for the winter season and are currently working hard on bringing you a fantastic 2018 exhibition along with an exciting events programme. 

Follow our website and Facebook for updates. 

Located in the vibrant village of Alford, just 45 minutes from Aberdeen, the Grampian Transport Museum boasts an impressive range of transport exhibits, from travelling chariots of the 1800's, to some of the fastest cars ever made.

The museum is a living museum that probes the past, present and future. Many exhibits are climb aboard, hands on and even ride on! The exhibits are updated every year during the closed season, providing a wide range of new and exciting things to see each year.

Why not make a day of it? Visit the museum and stop off at the Travellers Rest Tea Room for a cup of tea or coffee and a bite to eat. We can accommodate school trips and groups. Discounts for groups of 12 or more are available.

Throughout the year the museum has an extensive outdoor events programme, with such events taking place as Alford SpeedFest, Grampian Motorcycle Convention, Family Fun Days and How Many Left?

Grampian Transport Museum continues to build on strengths that won it the title of 'Visitor Attraction of the Year' at the 2014 Aberdeen City & Shire Tourism Awards, and is home to the Visitor Information Centre for the area.
