  • A great experience for young and old. The tea room has great light food and fancy cakes as well. Staff are all volunteers and a lot of them are ex military so know what they're talking about. If you haven't been you should definitely check it out.
  • Plenty to see. Interesting historical displays about Aberdeen's famous regiment. Knowledgeable, keen staff.
  • NIce cafe run by Volunteers in Most part. Museum is well worth a visit but there is a charge for this. Original HQ of Gordon Highlanders.
  • Visited here on a wet Aberdeen Saturday in October. What a revelation. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great exhibitions. Worth a visit even if you don't enjoy military history!!
  • Excellent information and beautifully told stories of the regiment and of the heroic acts of its members. Very moving.
