The Gordon Highlanders museum tells the story of one of Scotland’s greatest regiments. Spanning over 200 years, from the Napoleonic wars until the amalgamation of all Scottish regiments in 2005. The museum is packed with tales of courage and tenacity on the battlefield.
The museum has interactive exhibits, original film footage, life-size models, touch screens and the traditional displays of regimental colours, uniforms, medals and weapons.
The Gordon Highlanders Museum is the best presented amongst the museums of the Scottish Regiments. You are given just the right amount of information and there are good illustrations on the Gordon Highlanders' most gallant battles from Waterloo, through El Alamein to more recent conflicts.
For children, there are some nice touches such as an area where they can try on different versions regimental uniform, from traditional kilts to modern battle dress.
A special mention must also be given to Duchess Jean Tearoom at the Gordon Highlanders Museum.
An attractive museum in a quiet corner of Aberdeen. To find the museum, follow Queen’s Drive (B9119) as it heads out of the city towards Alford. After the roundabout where Queen's Drive crosses Anderson Drive there are signposts to the museum.
