The Gordon Highlanders Museum
From the Napoleonic wars to the modern day, you can re-live the compelling and dramatic story of The Gordon Highlanders through our spectacular and interactive displays.
Following in the footsteps of serving soldiers, our museum takes you on an eye-opening journey through the history of one of the most famous regiments in the British Army. It is a story spanning 200 years of world history and 19 Victoria Crosses and is packed with tales of courage and tenacity on the battlefield.
The Museum is housed in the former home and studio of prominent Scottish artist, Sir George Reid and offers a range of facilities and services to its visitors.
