2. Arrange a Visit to the Farming Museum
If your school or community group is interested in reliving the story of Aberdeenshire’s colourful farming past, why not visit to the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum. Set in the unique, semi-circular home farm steading, located in the central courtyard, the museum describes the farming story with themes including: The Aden Estate Story, The Horseman’s House and Weel Vrocht Grun. The museum also features the 1950’s Hareshowe Farm.
The Aberdeenshire Farming Museum is open annually from April to October. The opening times are Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 3.30pm.
To arrange a school or community group visit to the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum, please contact the museum by either calling 01771 624590, or alternatively emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Book a Ranger Service School or Group Session
