Owner description: “The museum opens for the 2017 season on Sunday March 26 at 10am. 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; Guy has very kindly loaned the museum several items from his personal collection including a stunning Rolls Royce Merlin engine from a Spitfire, several of his motorbikes plus the Gravity racer which he crashed spectacularly at 90mph. 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. This year the museum is celebrating the bicentenary of the bicycle with a special exhibition that explores the routes of the modern bicycle and celebrates 200 years of one of the greatest transport revolutions. Continuing in 2017 is the GTM's very own Junior Driving School - a fun and educational introduction to road safety and driving for 4 to 10 year olds. Open 10am – 5pm daily, April – September and 10am – 4pm until October 29.”

This , and next year in the Special Exhibition Area of this well run and well established venue, there is a very interesting history of the railway line which used to run from Alford, into Kintore, and on to Aberdeen. As well as the maps and pictures of the stations, railway relics including mile posts and station signs are included and a signal arm or two. This year has also seen one of the Royal Cars from Balmoral being given Centre stage along with an interesting collection of motor bikes, Horse drawn coaches, and even a genuine Dalek from the Doctor Who T.v. Series..Addmission is reasonable for what is on view and that includes Aberdeens last Tram , and the CRUDEN Bay Hotel Tram both of which Feature in the permanent collection The Museum changes round the exhibited during the Close season. (November to March but a very good website will give details of Next years Exhibits shortly if you cant make it this year

the exhibits vary from early cars and bikes to a huge pipe organ and the tardis, during the summer they have days when you can have a go in one of the cars and be driven round the track, the cars are all driven by owners who take the time to volounteer their time and cars for this.

Wonderful museum. My husband was in his element looking at all the vehicles, bikes & exhibitions.

He even got a ride round the track by a stunt driver while I relaxed and watched with a coffee in the cafe.

Not too expensive to get into either.

Alford & the surrounding areas really are a vibrant place with plenty to do!
