Farming Museum Opens for Season
The award-winning Aberdeenshire Farming Museum in Aden Country Park, Mintlaw opens its doors for the 2012 season.
The Farming Museum and Hareshowe Farm will open on Tuesday to Sunday each week from Monday 2nd April to Sunday 30th September 2012, and Tuesday 16th to Sunday 28th October 2012, from 11am to 4pm. Admission to the museum is free but donations are always welcomed.
The Aberdeenshire Farming Museum brings alive the story of the NE Scotland farming past in the unmatched setting of the restored estate home farm. This unique semi-circular steading is in turn surrounded by the beautiful woodlands of Aden Country Park that provide an attractive haven for wildlife and visitors.
The Farming Museum excitingly portrays the story of North East Farming in three related interpretive themes which include the Aden Estate Story, Weel Vrocht Grun, and the Horseman’s House.
Neil Shirran, Aden Development Worker said:
“I’m delighted to see the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum open its doors. The Museum plays a vital role in reconnecting both the young and old with their farming roots. There have been some new editions and changes to the Museum over the winter months which we hope will start to modernise both the building and displays”.
