New Booking System

As we emerge from lockdown we are delighted to announce that the museum opened for visitors on 23rd July. We plan to open initially from 10 am to 5 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We have taken all measures possible to make a visit safe and have actioned all Government guidelines to this end.

One important change to control numbers and remove the need to handle cash and tickets is a move to online ticket sales, administered by See Tickets.  To visit, therefore, a booking must be made in advance.  


Online Booking


For groups or larger parties, please contact the museum, we may be able to provide a discounted rate. 

Visiting with the family?

There are always fun quizzes and trails for younger visitors to enjoy inside the museum. Outside, the front lawn - complete with distinctive red phone box and Birkhall Steam Engine - is a great place to enjoy a picnic.  Bring a blanket or your own folding chairs.



We believe that your four-legged friend(s) should be as much a part of your day out as possible, therefore you are more than welcome to bring your dog to the museum, but be prepared, our staff WILL make a fuss of them!   

Freshwater bowls are placed outside each day and your dog can even join you as you walk around the museum, all we ask is that they remain well behaved and on their lead at all times.

We love dog's so much we even named one of our exhibits after them, the 'ROVER' SD1 Vitesse or was that the other way round!

Gift Aid

As a registered self-financing charity, the Grampian Transport Museum can claim back the tax on your entry fee as Gift Aid. All you need to do when buying your admission ticket is to fill out a short Gift Aid declaration.

This small additional payment can make a massive difference to this museum. Your extra money will go towards conserving and expanding our collection. With your help, we can ensure that Aberdeenshire has a museum of travel and transport that the community is genuinely proud of.
