Recognising the ever-increasing number of visitors arriving in motorhomes and campervans, We have launched a new initiative for the 2019 season. Motorhomes and Campervans which arrive before museum closing times (open 7 days/week from March to October) can book in for their visit the following day and will then be allowed to camp inside the secure museum grounds overnight free of charge. The museum currently has no camping facilities so you will have to be fully self-contained, but it will be quiet, secure and close to local shops and eateries if required. The site will not be available for booking on event weekends.  Please check out the museum’s website for these dates.

The museum is one of the top visitor attractions in the North East of Scotland and is a popular stop-off point for visitors to Royal Deeside, the Castle Trail, the Whisky Trail and the new NE 250 driving route.

Of special interest to touring visitors in the spring and autumn, Grampian Transport Museum links with many of the other top attractions in the area to offer the ‘Aberdeenshire ‘Spring Rover’ and ‘Autumn Rover’ tickets for which you only pay the entry price of the issuing attraction and then can visit up to 3 of the others free of charge. The participants vary slightly but include The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses (Fraserburgh), Macduff Marine Aquarium, Braemar Castle, Royal Lochnagar Distillery, Balmoral Castle, National Trust for Scotland Fyvie Castle, Aberdeen Science Centre and The Gordon Highlanders Museum (Aberdeen). A wonderful choice of visits, exceptional value for money and at times of the year when the roads are relatively quiet and Aberdeenshire looks its wonderful best!
