The Gordon Highlanders Museum Tours

The Gordon Highlanders Museum
Located in Aberdeen’s West End, the Gordon Highlanders Museum is dedicated to what Sir Winston Churchill once described as “the finest regiment in the world.” The Gordon Highlanders were active from 1794 to 1994, and the independently run military museum is committed to preserving and sharing the legacy of the historic infantry unit.

The Basics
Learn the compelling and dramatic 200-year-long story of the Gordon Highlanders, from the Napoleonic Wars through the Indian and South African campaigns, both World Wars, and the Cold War. At the Gordon Highlanders Museum—staffed entirely by volunteers—you’ll find displays of uniforms, medals, and weapons, alongside photography and film exhibits, interactive maps, and life-size models.

To save time at the entrance, prebook your admission ticket online. After browsing the exhibits, relax in the museum’s tea room or well-maintained gardens.
