Overview

The museum is currently closed for the winter season and will reopen on Friday 30th March 2018. The Grampian Transport Museum is a living museum that probes the past, present and future. Many exhibits are climb aboard, hands on and even ride on! Every season the museum refreshes around one third of its exhibits –this year’s exhibition includes the Guy Martin collection; A few old favourites remain, including Billy Connolly’s Boom Lowrider motortrike, as seen in his ‘World Tour of England, Ireland and Wales’ TV show and the ex-Grampian Police Rover SD1 Vitesse. The museum continues to celebrate the Scottish Motor Industry with ‘Made in Scotland’ – showcasing a number of Scottish made vehicles, including the Linwood made Hillman Imp. GTM has its very own Junior Driving School - a fun and educational introduction to road safety and driving for 4 to 10 year olds.
