Grampian Transport Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Climb on board a 19th-century travelling chariot, see a striking Sinclair C5 tricycle or an MGA twin-cam roadster. See motorcycles including a Scott Squirrel, and a Solex motor-assisted bicycle. Public transportation exhibits include about 20 buses from a 1930 Albion to the very first 'bendy-bus' in Britain.
There are much more than just historical (and futuristic) vehicles to see; there'a collection of models and miniatures, motoring signs, motor parts and accessories, plans and drawings, surveying equipment, and a wealth of automotive photographs.
See railway equipment including an iron-wheeled trolley, old railroad timetables, prints of old locomotives, railway worker's gear, and model locomotives. See old motoring magazines and books, how-to manuals and early motoring photographs.
The museum doesn't just look at the past; it examines the present and the future of transportation.
