A 5-star graded visitor attraction which tells the story of the Gordon Highlanders over 200 years.
The Gordan Highlanders were described by Winston Churchill in 1900 as ‘the Finest Regiment in the World!’, and this museum displays the history of the regiment proudly from the Napoleonic Wars, India, Afghanistan and South Africa, through to both World Wars and the Cold War. Rated a five-star attraction by Visit Scotland, this Museum is well known for its warm and friendly welcome, and for the delicious tea, coffee, cakes, homemade soup and scones served in the volunteer ran Duchess Jean Tearoom. Lunch is served from 1130am to 330pm.
From February 2019 a major new exhibition will be unveiled in the form of a replica WW1 trench that is currently being built in the grounds of the museum. The Trench will be a wonderful edition to the tour, offering visitors the opportunity to experience firsthand what life was like in the trenches.
The Museum is in West Aberdeen, a ten-minute bus ride from the city centre. Tickets cost £8 for adults and £4.50 for children, with a family ticket available for £16.
