Located in the vibrant village of Alford, just 45 minutes from Aberdeen, the museum boasts an impressive range of transport exhibits, from travelling chariots, of the 1800's, to some of the fastest cars ever made. Every season the museum refreshes around one third of its exhibits –this year’s exhibition includes ‘The Guy Martin Collection’ and ‘It’s Electric’ which gives an in depth look at the past, present and future of electric vehicles. A few old favourites remain, including our MACK Snowplough, Billy Connolly’s Boom Lowrider motortrike and one of our Curator’s favourites, the ex-Grampian Police Rover SD1 Vitesse. Our Tea Room is also open daily and serves an array of hot drinks, light lunches and snacks.

As the electric car becomes a familiar sight on our roads, we consider its origins with Robert Davidson of Aberdeen who demonstrated the world’s first electric carriage in 1839. Our full-sized working replica of his ‘electric engine’ launches the fascinating stop-start story of the electric car. A new first-floor gallery then probes the future of the electric car and explains the technology behind the closely associated autonomous car.
Scotland’s early motor industry is explained and illustrated with key examples of the famous ‘3As’; Argyll, Albion and Arrol Johnston including a rare AJ racing car.
Also new are Guy Martin’s Prized Possessions including Guy’s famous Spitfire engine, which has been joined by several other aero engines in a new section exploring the scope of the piston engine.
