Aberdeen and the Northeast Sights

Grampian Transport Museum

Fodor's Review

The entertaining and enthusiastically run Grampian Transport Museum specializes in road-based means of locomotion, backed up by an archives and library. Its collection of buses and trams is second to none, but the Craigievar Express, a steam-driven creation invented by the local postman to deliver mail more efficiently, is the most unusual. There's a small café that offers tea, baked goods, and ice cream.
